Welcome to the Lishko Lab!

We are interested in the physiological functions of steroid hormones in the human body. We study steroid regulation of a diverse array of tissues, from the brain to the ovaries and testes. A better understanding of these processes will lead to novel treatments of neurodegenerative diseases and improved human reproductive health.
