Michael Large, PhD
After growing up in Wisconsin, Mike earned his PhD from Baylor College of Medicine where he focused on the intersection of progesterone and growth factor signaling and their role in endometrial receptivity. While finishing his work there, he was recruited by Mark Hughes of Genesis Genetics to open a Research and Development PGS laboratory in Houston, Texas. Mike quickly rose to prominence as a technical expert and was instrumental in the adoption and implementation of Next Generation Sequencing. Shortly after being acquired by CooperSurgical, he was promoted to Director of Genomic Laboratories, overseeing multiple PGT-A labs. He then took on a role leading research efforts in Genomics where his team developed state-of-the-art analytical methods for interrogating Reproductive Genetics. Most recently, Mike was promoted to Vice President of Donor Gamete Services, overseeing California Cryobank and Donor Egg Bank USA.
