Recent Work

As Friedman Fellow, I am currently working with mentors Dr. Leonid Poretsky and Dr. Seto‐Young.  My primary field of work is studying the effects of Irisin on gonadotropins in murine pituitary cells and on steroid hormones in human granulose cells.  Our focus is to better understand the role of this recently discovered hormone and the therapeutic implications it may possess.
