Spring 2023

We published a new review article in Frontiers in Endocrinology on how glucocorticoids regulate cancer development! Also, Sara and Ben both gave amazing platform presentations on glucocorticoid (Sara) and androgen (Ben) regulation of gastric inflammation during Helicobacter infection at Digestive Disease Week in Chicago!

November 2022

Sara passed her candidacy exam! Congrats

Spring 2022
