Comparative Neuroendocrinology Laboratory

Research Interests

The research interest in my Lab is focused on the endocrine mechanisms that regulate and coordinate growth, with energy balance and reproduction. The long-term goal is to answer how physiological balance is achieved in the face of the competing energetic demands of growth and reproduction using fish as animal model. This multidisciplinary and integrative program involves whole animal as well as in vitro studies, and utilizes physiology, biochemistry, cellular and molecular biology tools.

Research Lines

Study on neurohormonal regulation of growth hormone (GH) secretion in fish.
Study on the influence of nutritional status on somatic growth and muscular development.
