Research interests

Research Interests - Further Information

Google Scholar - Publications Profile

I am interested in the regulation of the neuroendocrine axes, in particular those regulating reproductive function, both by internal factors such as gonadal steroids and stress hormones and external factors such as chemical mixtures that are found in the environment. While it is important to understand these processes and effects in the adult animal where the reproductive axis is mature, the interactions and effects that occur between such factors and neuroendocrine axes during development are also of critical importance, as changes induced at this time can programme later dysfunction/function.  I am also interested in the 'wider effects' of hormonal signalling systems, for example reproductive hormones are so named due to their principal actions on reproductive organs but it is becoming increasingly recognised that they can also affect 'non-reproductive' tissues such as the smooth muscle in the bladder, cardiac muscle and the adrenal gland.  The exact effects and the mechanisms of action at these 'extra' sites, however, are poorly understood and/or characterized and thus are also included in my research programmes.
