Brief Summary of Research
Our laboratory currently focuses on endocrine toxicology and particularly “endocrine disruptors”, chemicals that may imitate, inhibit or otherwise modulate hormones and the endocrine system. For many years we have investigated the actions of agricultural herbicides, particularly the mechanisms by which these chemicals disrupt estrous cycling in rodent models used for toxicology screens.

We are also using our experience with steroid receptors to uncover details of competitive binding properties of environmentally sensitive chemicals with the estrogen receptor, particularly varying strategies that chemicals use to associate with receptor binding.
