Research Interests


Our work's main focus is the regulation of stem cells of the endocrine system, their involvement in disease and potential uses in therapeutic approaches. Our research aims to understand better the basic biology underlying human disease, with the ultimate goal of developing safer and better treatments.

We work on stem cells of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, with a strong focus on the pituitary gland.
