Comparative Endocrinology

Zhu Lab                                             

Welcome to the Zhu lab! We are studying physiological functions of hormones and receptors using advanced genetic, molecular, biochemical, endocrine, and physiological approaches. Currently, we are focusing on characterization of nongenomic steroid receptors, their signaling, and their applications in medicine and aquaculture. Our research programs had been supported by National Science Foundation. Currently, these ongoing projects are supported by grants from National Institute Health and North Carolina Biotechnology Center.
