Overview
Dr. Navarro is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He received his PhD from the University of Córdoba, Spain, in 2006 under the mentorship of Dr. Manuel Tena-Sempere. His dissertation work focused on the characterization of the neuroendocrine mechanisms that control reproductive function, with special emphasis on the role of kisspeptins in the attainment and maintenance of fertility. In 2007, Dr. Navarro joined the group of Dr. Robert A. Steiner at the University of Washington, Seattle. During this period (2007-2011), he studied the neuronal mechanisms that control kisspeptin release and proposed a model of interaction between neurokinin B, dynorphin and kisspeptin that has become accepted by his peers as the likely GnRH pulse generator. In 2012, Dr. Navarro was recruited to join the faculty of the Division of Endocrinology at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston, where he continues his research on the characterization of the central circuits governing reproductive function and metabolism.

Our lab focuses on the identification of new central factors and the characterization of their mechanism of action in the control of reproduction and metabolism. In particular, we are interested in the hypothalamic Kiss1 and GnRH neurons using a number of genetic mouse model and viral delivery approaches. The student involved in this project will be in charge of the study of one of our potential gene candidates to play this regulatory role. He or she will be involved in the development and maintenance of mouse colonies, performing anatomical and expression studies of gene and protein expression in the brain (PCR, in situ hybridization, immunohistochemistry, etc) combined with stereotaxic injections of viral constructs to modify the expression of targeted genes. Characterization of a number of biological parameters that define reproductive and metabolic functions will be required (e.g. fertility assessments, monitoring of puberty onset, body weight, food intake, etc). The student will be expected to work in collaboration with other members of the lab but in an independent manner. He/she will be encouraged to present their data at local and regional meetings, analyze their data and prepare them for publication.
