Team 12: Molecular Pathophysiology of Adrenal & Endocrine Tissues

Molecular Pathophysiology of Adrenal & Endocrine Tissues (team leaders: A. Martinez, DR CNRS, P. Val, DR CNRS). Our team is interested in the pathophysiology of the adrenal cortex and endocrine tissues. We focus on the molecular mechanisms involved in adrenal and gonads differentiation and how their deregulation results in tumorigenesis and disease. Our team is internationally recognized for its expertise on transgenic mouse models of adrenal and gonadal diseases.


We develop two projects that rely on genetically engineered mice. These two projects explore the common and diverging signalling pathways, involved in the differentiation and pathophysiology of the adrenal cortex and gonads.
