        Thyroid Dysfunction

        My research efforts are directed towards examining the non-genomic role of thyroid hormone in brain development and vesicle movement and in determining the subunit structure of the 5'deiodinase type II. My clinical interests lie in the area of thyroid dysfunction, in particular thyroid cancer.
