Neuroendocrinology : NIDDK


The Neuroendocrinology program supports research on the following:

  • Physiological response to stress through the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis
  • Neuropeptides and neuropeptide receptor signaling pathways
  • Gene regulation in the hypothalamus and pituitary gland
  • Diseases of the pituitary, including neoplasia
  • Hypopituitary dwarfism
  • Identification and characterization of novel hypothalamic or pituitary hormones
  • Pituitary hormone receptors and actions on target tissues (e.g., GH IGF axis)
  • Neuropeptide receptors in diagnosis and treatment of disease
  • Neuroendocrine-immune interactions"

For more information, please contact Dr. Saul Malozowski, Senior Advisor for Endocrine Physiology.
