Dr. Navarro is an Associate 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.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
