Peter A Cattini, Professor and Head
Our work has focussed on two areas of physiological and clinical importance including molecular regulation of the human pituitary and placental growth hormone-related gene family (Neuroendocrinology/ Reproductive Endocrinology), and FGFs in the heart (Cardiovascular Endocrinology).

Core members of the laboratory are Ms. Marge E. Bock and Ms. Yan Jin.

Our goal is not only to create new knowledge in a respectful environment and translate this knowledge when appropriate, but also to provide an excellent educational experience for our trainees.
