Professional Summary:

My research is broadly concerned with studies of the biology of affective disorders and the development of biological markers and clinical laboratory tests for major depressive disorder. Hormonal modulation of brain and behavior with the emphasis on gonadal hormones and the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal system neurotransmitter and their metabolites.

A second area of work involves studies of premenstrual changes and menopause and hormone related changes in mood and behavior in women. Studies include: influence of hormonal replacement therapy; the development of clinical and diagnostic procedures; the association between gonadal hormones and other hormones, their change over time and clinical pathology, and the relationship between affective symptomatology during periods of change in the woman‘s life cycle and affective disorders.
