Research Summary/In Plain Language

Research in Plain Language

I conduct studies on the structure and function of receptors. These are special proteins on the surfaces of cells. These proteins are the location where hormones produced in the brain’s hypothalamus and in the pituitary gland interact to control cell function in the thyroid gland and central nervous system.
