The overall aim of my research programme is to understand the hypothalamic control of energy metabolism and reproductive maturation. Projects exploit seasonal cycles in body weight in the Siberian hamster and transgenic mice as models to understand long-term regulation of caloric intake and expenditure. Current foci are on the role of hypothalamic thyroid hormone availability in regulating metabolism and the role of tanycytes as energy sensors and regulators of hypothalamic function, and central and peripheral actions of FGF21 in regulating energy metabolism.
