Short Research Description

The major goals of my research have been to discover local cell-cell interactions and molecular mechanisms that are used to establish the nascent ovarian follicle niche, control the onset and maintenance of fetal testosterone synthesis, and stimulate the acquisition of steroidogenic activity within rogue cancer cells.
