- Published 17 scientific papers and has given 18 presentations at international meetings
- Reviewer for the journal Neuroendocrinology
- Current research focus on mouse embryonic stem cells as an in vitro model of the differentiation and development of hormone-secreting neurons.Such research could provide medical treatment to neuroendocrine-related diseases such as Kallmann’s, Prader-Willi, and Rubenstein-Taybi.
