Endocrinology

University of California, Berkeley

Overview

The faculty associated with the Graduate Group in Endocrinology have diverse interests representing endocrinology in the broadest sense: chemical mediators in the living world directed by autocrine, paracrine, endocrine, and ectohormonal factors. Our program faculty encompasses hormone-oriented research programs such as cancer biology, signal transduction, drug design, membrane biology, virology, metabolism, differentiation, morphogenesis, toxicology, and gene transcription. Graduates from the endocrinology program have transitioned into careers in a variety of fields including education, research (in both academic and industry settings), government regulation, and private business.

The main goal of the graduate program is to engage students in the interdisciplinary aspects of the field of endocrinology through seminars, courses, and our diverse faculty research perspectives; which range from organismal and comparative endocrinology to chemical ecology to structural, molecular, and cellular endocrinology.
