Research interests

I am interested in defining how the gonadotrophin releasing hormone (GnRH) neurons, well established as the ultimate downstream regulators of the central control of reproductive function, are regulated by the multitude of external and internal cues necessary for successful fertility. I am investigating the synaptic regulation of GnRH neurons, with particular emphasis on the innervation to their lengthy dendrites, through a variety of morphological imaging and transgenic mouse model approaches. In addition to understanding the regulation of normal fertility, I am also interested in addressing the central neuroendocrine abnormalities of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), the leading cause of infertility in women.
