Estrogenic Modulation of Thermoregulatory Neural Circuits in Mice
Dr. Stephanie Correa is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Integrative Biology and Physiology at UCLA. She earned a BA in Biology from Pomona College and a PhD in Neurobiology and Behavior from Cornell University. Her dissertation research with Elizabeth Adkins-Regan and Patricia Johnson tested the effects of ovarian steroids on sex determination in birds. Her postdoctoral research at Boston University Medical Center identified strain differences in the testis determination pathway in mice. Postdoctoral research with Holly Ingraham at UCSF identified neurons in the hypothalamus that regulate physical activity and body weight in female mice. Research in her lab aims to understand sex differences in the regulation of temperature and energy balance.
Dr. Correa will present her seminar entitled, "Estrogenic Modulation of Thermoregulatory Neural Circuits in Mice" on Wednesday, September 8th at 11:30am.
