Cellular and Molecular Endocrinology Research

The cellular and molecular endocrinology research group in the Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes, Metabolism, and Nutrition-Research investigates a broad group of endocrine-related conditions.

These areas of research include:

  • Amyloid formation in type 2 diabetes and regulation of growth hormone gene expression
  • Autoimmune thyroid disease
  • Bone metabolism
  • Calcium in atherogenesis
  • Growth factor regulation
  • Molecular medicine approaches in cancer treatment
  • Muscle metabolism and aging
  • Thyroid cancer

Our team emphasizes methods of cell biology, molecular biology and recombinant DNA technology. Our team's primary goal is to promote and disseminate the latest methodologies and developments within the broad disciplines of molecular and cellular biology and apply them to the study of endocrine problems.
