Research Interests

Endocrine disruption and infertility share a number of suspected disease pathways and risk factors.  My laboratory focuses upon the characterization and antagonism of promising targets in animal models. Major research efforts include assay development within the Endocrinology service at DCPAH, and characterization and alleviation of the premature loss of female fertility with age and chemotherapy or toxicant exposure.  A novel focus of our work concerns the impact of selective estrogen receptor modulators on normal and precancerous breast and ovarian tissue and the follicular reserve.
