My expertise encompasses the area of steroid biochemistry, steroid receptor signaling in reproductive and non-reproductive tissues. Also I have considerable expertise in the area of sex steroid hormones and regulation of the physiology and pathophysiology of sexual function and dysfunction. My recent work is focused on the role of androgen hormones on diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease.
