Every organ in the body secretes and responds to hormones. Hormones direct cells to grow, proliferate and differentiate. Sensory perception, energy metabolism and reproduction are also hormone-driven. Endocrinology is the study of how the endocrine system synthesises and stores hormones, and how those hormones induce physiological functions in the cells of endocrine glands and other tissues. Our group is researching how hormones direct bone formation and resorption, alter breast cancer cell growth, and induce stress responses.
