The Hermann Lab

Our laboratory is part of the group of stem cell and developmental biologists at the University of Texas at San Antonio. We study the stem cell system underlying spermatogenesis which are essential for male fertility. A primary interest of the lab is understanding the fundamental biology of these spermatogonial stem cells, normal male germline development, and how stem cells might be used to regenerate spermatogenesis and promote animal transgenesis in nonhuman primates. We are also actively pursuing approaches to preserve fertility in prepubertal male cancer patients.

Hills and Dales

Our primary goal as scientists and trainees is to work hard to make important contributions to our scientific community by doing performing solid, informative, and important experiments. We are also learners - we learn from our experiments, each other and our environment at UTSA. BUT, we also try to enjoy our time together...and when we get a chance, we take a trip over to the branch office (just ask John McCarrey). Debauchery? NO WAY, its all clean good fun. Below is a list of some of our most recent group activities.

Some scientists find, or so it seems, that they get their best ideas when smoking; others by drinking coffee or whisky. Thus there is no reason why I should not admit that some may get their ideas by observing, or by repeating observations.

– Karl Raimund Popper (1902-94) Austrian-British Philosopher

OK - admittedly there should be a longer list here - working on that! (C'mon, we're spending all of our time working in the lab making great discoveries after all)
