Welcome to Hammer Laboratory

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.
