PhD (Johns Hopkins)

Position: 
Professor
Areas of interest: 

Molecular endocrinology, reproductive physiology, intracellular signalling, transcriptional regulation

Current research: 

The Bernard lab investigates molecular mechanisms of pituitary hormone synthesis using in vitro and in vivo approaches. Research in the lab concerns: 1) signal transduction mechanisms through which members of the transforming growth factor β superfamily regulate pituitary follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) synthesis, 2) mechanisms of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) signaling in pituitary gonadotrope cells, and 3) hypothalamic-pituitary control of thyroid hormone production.
