Dr. Gore’s research focuses on the neurobiological control of reproduction across the life cycle, especially the life transitions of early postnatal development and reproductive aging. Current projects in the Gore lab, supported by funding from the NIH, seek to determine the molecular and cellular effects of environmental endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) on brain sexual differentiation, and the role of the hypothalamus in reproductive aging. We use a combination of cellular (light and electron microscopy), molecular (gene expression, epigenetics), physiological (hormones, reproductive status) and behaviors to gain mechanistic insights into the role of the brain on neuroendocrine functions. Dr. Gore has published 4 books and 130 articles on these subjects, and has been honored for her work by election as Fellow to the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Dr. Gore is currently editor-in-chief of the journal Endocrinology.
