Desroziers Laboratory

Research interests

My research focuses on the mechanism by which sex hormones shape the brain leading to the differentiation of male and female typical behaviours. I am particularly interested in the role of sex hormones in wiring the neuronal circuits controlling fertility and sexual behaviours throughout life.

Current projects:

  • Unravelling the role of glial cells in fertility regulation
  • Investigating the effect of early androgen exposure in male and female socio-sexual behaviours

Clinical conditions

  • Infertility
  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
