Hammer

Principal Investigator

Dr. Gary D. Hammer, M.D., Ph.D. is a medical endocrinologist specializing in the treatment of adrenal and gonadal diseases. Work in his laboratory has focussed on the mechanisms by which signaling and transcriptional programs initiate adrenal-specific growth and differentiation with an emphasis on the dysregulated growth of adrenocortical stem cells in development and cancer.

Dr Hammer's research focuses on the molecular underpinnings of adrenocortical growth in development and cancer. His laboratory's goals are to characterize the adrenocortical stem/progenitor cell population and elucidate how altered regulation of these cells contributes to adrenocortical disease, namely hypoplasias, dysplasias and cancer.
