Our endocrine laboratory investigates the hormonal control of physiological processes involved in growth, metabolism, appetite, reproduction, lactation, stress, pain and inflammation. We examine cell signalling molecules that communicate between body systems in order to better understand the complexity of normal function and pathological diseases.

With our research and industry collaborators we have projects in a wide variety of species, including agricultural animal production (beef and dairy cattle, pigs, sheep, chickens), companion animals (dogs & cats), recreational/sporting animals (horses), companion animals (dogs & cats), and biomedical science (laboratory animals).
