Current Project: Broadly my research in the Moenter Lab investigates the origins and mechanisms underlying the regulation of reproduction by the brain and prenatal androgenization (PNA) in a mouse model that resembles the neuroendocrine phenotype of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Our goal is to understand how PNA changes the brain and to identify new aspects of this disorder.
