Brief Summary of Research
Our lab is no longer active.  Over a period spanning four decades our basic research theme was the study of mammalian hormones and endocrine systems, principally those involved with reproduction.  We investigated aspects of hormone action and secretion in a variety of problem areas, including growth and development, aging, substance abuse, stress, and toxicology.  The rapidly expanding field of endocrine toxicology was our most recent focal interest.
