Personal profile

Area of Expertise

A properly functioning stress response is required for maintaining homeostasis. The endocrine arm of the stress response is sub-served by the hypothalamic pituitary adrenal (HPA) axis. Dysregulation of this axis is tightly correlated with the mood disorders of depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.
My lab is interested in the molecular mechanisms of stress response downregulation. Specifically, how the stress steroids, glucocorticoids, downregulate the peptide that triggers the stress response itself: corticotropin releasing hormone (CRH). We have provided evidence that a specific epigenetic repressive complex is necessary to effect downregulation. Further studies may pinpoint interaction of this complex with unique conformations of chromatin, and thus uncover novel drug targets, in particular for depression.
