Research Contents

My research focuses on functional analysis of the brain-pituitary-ovary axis using zebrafish as the model.  Our current interests include: (1) endocrine regulation of reproduction by the reproductive and growth axes; (2) intra-follicular paracrine/autocrine communication network in the ovary; (3) impacts of environmental endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) on reproduction and public health; and (4) zebrafish as a model for aging, human diseases and drug discovery.  Our research involves using a variety of techniques in molecular and cell biology, physiology and genetics, including the newly-emerged genome-editing technologies, i.e., TALEN and CRISPR/Cas9.
