Estrogen signaling in Kiss1 neurons promote strong bones in female mice
Estrogen signaling in Kiss1 neurons promote strong bones in female mice

Dr. Candice Herber is a Senior Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Herber's research focuses on understanding how and why central estrogen signaling in the medial basal hypothalamus (MBH) of the brain controls energy allocation in a sex-dependent way. Her recent publication identified Kisspeptin neurons as key regulators of this brain to bone axis, linking fertility regulating neurons to skeletal homeostasis. Learn more about Dr. Herber's research and how Trio RNA-Seq enabled her to efficiently study small neuronal cell populations in mice.
