Prof. Bernard earned his Ph.D. at Johns Hopkins University and then conducted post-doctoral research in molecular endocrinology at Northwestern University. His first independent position was as a Staff Scientist at the Population Council’s Center for Biomedical Research at The Rockefeller University. He then moved his lab to McGill in April 2006. 

The Bernard lab investigates molecular mechanisms of pituitary hormone synthesis using in vitro and in vivo approaches. Projects in the lab concern: 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.
