Luke Govers

Luke is interested in defining the role of estrogen, testosterone and estrogen-mimicking endocrine disruptors in the process of urethral closure.

Using a novel genital-tubercle culture system, established in the Pask Lab, Luke’s research is providing insights to the role of these chemicals in development, and their potential to disrupt the process leading to the disorder hypospadias.

Luke completed a Master of Science at the University of Melbourne and is currently pursuing his PhD.
