"Mammalian Sex Determination at the Edge of Ambiguity"
SEPTEMBER 9, 2013
Michael A. Weiss, MD, PhD, MBA
Chairman of the Department of Biochemistry, Case Western Reserve University
Cowan-Blum Professor of Cancer Research & Professor of Biochemistry & Medicine
Dr. Weiss will discuss how an XY human embryo, whose initial development follows female lines, undergoes a switch to the male body plan. Clues to the mechanism of this switch are provided by analysis of anomalous XY females. Rare families in which the father and daughter share the same Y chromosome raise intriguing questions regarding the biological origins of gender identity.
