The research projects in Dr. Hammer's laboratory are aimed at elucidating the mechanisms by which growth factor signaling and transcriptional programs initiate adrenal-specific growth and differentiation with an emphasis on dysregulated 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.
