Double congrats to Justine!

Justine Mathieu-Denoncourt has recently published two papers from her M. Sc. thesis in General Comparative and Endocrinology! One of which is an important literature review on the effects of plasticizers – substances that can leach out of plastics – on our hormonal systems. It compares and contrasts their health effects in humans and other non-human species. OPEN ACCESS ARTICLE

The second is a research paper on the health effects of monomethyl phthalate on frog reproduction and development. ARTICLE

Congratulations Justine! We are so proud of you!

Congrats to Diana Castañeda for her first Ph. D. publication!

Diana just got her Ph. D. literature review accepted in Frontiers in Endocrinology. This review highlights the hormonal interactions observed between the hypothalamic pituitary-adrenal/interrenal (HPA), -thyroid (HPT), and -gonadal (HPG) axes to better understand how these endocrine systems interact with each other to influence the development of testes. Congrats Diana! We are proud of you! – Langlois Lab
