Welcome to Our Lab

The Bernard lab investigates molecular mechanisms of pituitary hormone synthesis and action 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, 3) FSH actions in extragonadal tissues, and 4) hypothalamic-pituitary control of thyroid hormone production.
