Achievements

  • Achievements include contribution to development of thyroid-stimulating hormone-releasing factor activity in the hypothalamus during early ontogenesis. Categorization of newborns across species into noradrenaline-type and thyroxine-type, based on evidence of importance of hormones for early adaptation to post-uterine life. Developing evidence that enzyme extra-thyroidal conversion of thyroxine into tiiodothyronine plays a paracrine function in physiology of gonads and the mammary gland.
