Achievements include production of data suggesting lack of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-I) may mediate growth retardation in the neonatal rat. Discovery of evidence that IGF-I may be one of several growth factors regulating differentiation of the fetal brain. Demonstration that the antigonadal effect of prolactin in the lizard Anolis carolinensis is directed toward the smaller ovarian follicles.
