Description of the research topic:
Thyroid hormones (TH) are master regulators of cellular metabolism and proliferation and consequently exert a fundamental impact on the development and function of the brain and the peripheries. Our Laboratory aims to (i) identify and modulate cell-type specific molecular pathways responsible for the regulation of TH economy in the brain and coupled peripheries; (ii) translate these mechanisms to specific brain functions under physiological and pathophysiological conditions; (iii) develop recombinant sensors and transgenic mouse approaches to assess and modulate cell-type specific TH action.
