Summary of Current Research

Dr. Roselli's laboratory investigates the molecular processes that underlie the neuronal actions of androgens.  He is currently exploring the functional roles that androgen-derived estrogens produced within neural target tissues play in the development and regulation of reproductive behavior and gonadotropin feedback.  His results indicate that the aromatase-signaling pathway plays essential roles in specific neurobiological actions of androgen at all ages in mammals.  Knowledge of the signaling pathways utilized in the brain by androgens to affect specific functions is important for the development of effective drugs and therapies to regulate male fertility and libido.
