Melmed Lab

The Melmed Lab focuses on elucidating mechanisms of pituitary tumor development and pathogenesis, translating the study of anterior pituitary function regulation to the clinic and establishing new modalities of diagnosis and treatment for pituitary diseases. Examples of work in the Melmed Lab include growth hormone in epithelial transformation and aging, genetic drivers of pituitary somatotroph adenoma progression and novel therapeutic development for aggressive pituitary adenomas.
