Areas of Collaborative Interest

My research is directed at better understanding factors that regulate synthesis and secretion of hormones that control reproduction, particularly the gonadotropins follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH). On of our goals is to develop a treatment that can permanently eliminate function of gonadotrophs without affecting other cells in the anterior pituitary gland. Such a treatment would have a variety of uses ranging from non-lethal control of wild animal populations to treatment of hormone-dependent cancers in humans.

I am interested in collaborating in the following areas:

  • subcellular mechanisms responsible for differential regulation of FSH and LH
  • regulation of anterior pituitary gland membrane receptors for sensitivity to GnRH
  • development of a treatment that can permanently and safely eliminate the function of gonadotrophs
  • licensing our technologies
