Anatomy and Physiology

Research Interests

My major interest is focused on three chief issues in the interplay between Endocrinology and Neurobiology. First, changes in the estrogen receptors with senescence, second changes with obesity and third the action of estrogen in the glucose homeostasis and apoptosis of cell in tissues subjected to hypoglycemic conditions.
