Professor Asgerally Fazleabas is a student of St Thomas College, Gurutalawa and Mt Lavinia, Sri Lanka. He received his initial diploma in Agriculture at the Aquinas University College in Colombo, Sri Lanka and earned his Bachelor of Science at the California State University in Fresno, California, then after received his Master of Science, Dairy Science and Reproductive Physiology from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. 

He became interested when he was in 8th grade in boarding school. One of the things that he did was work in a farm at the school and one of his responsibilities was to monitor the incubator where chicken eggs were being hatched. He had to candle the eggs by holding them up to the light to see if they were developing properly. He was fascinated by how quickly the blood vessels developed and that in a matter of a few days he could see a beating heart. Seeing these amazing developmental process really got Prof Fazleabas interested in Science & Developmental Biology.

Dr Asgerally Fazleabas received his Ph.D degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and completed postdoctoral training at the University of Florida. Following his training, he joined the Department Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Illinois at Chicago where he held the rank of Professor and Director of Women’s Health and Reproduction. In 2009, he became a Professor and Associate Chair of Research in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology, and Reproductive Biology, Director of the Center for Women’s Health Research and Co-Director of the Reproductive and Developmental Sciences Program at the Michigan State University.

Dr Fazleabas is an expert in female reproduction and his research focuses on critical cellular events during pregnancy. In his distinguish career he has published over 200 manuscripts, several of which appeared in Biology and Reproduction. He received the 2010 & 2016 Society for the Study of Reproduction Distinguish Awards. He has also served on numerous NIH Study sections and as 2009-2010 President for the Society of the Reproduction.

Some of his originality in research consist of pioneered in the development of novel and significant areas of knowledge, including the development of creative and innovative hypotheses, which he developed new knowledge in a creative manner and with independent insight. Created new knowledge to expand the understanding of reproductive biology and/or extended the application of knowledge to technology.
