Our laboratory uses a translational approach to study the hormones involved in the neuroendocrine regulation of reproductive development and function. We use a wide range of approaches, from bedside to bench and back, to study the molecular and physiologic mechanisms underlying the regulation of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) and gonadotropin synthesis. These include: 1. hypothalamic and pituitary cell models and in vitro studies; 2. In vivo mouse models; and 3. studies of patients with clinical reproductive disorders. Research opportunities exist for students to participate in our studies to: (1) learn and perform many techniques of molecular and cellular biology; (2) learn to apply molecular biology to the study of physiology and clinical disorders; and (3) obtain a better understanding of the regulation of puberty and reproduction in a translational setting.
