Areas of Interest

My long term research interests involve the biosynthesis of steroid hormones and their implications in normal human physiology and disease. I am studying the role of novel adrenal-derived bioactive androgens in normal human physiology and pathologies using human serum samples. Women and pre-pubertal children are currently the focus of my research.
