Reinhold HutzReinhold J. Hutz, Professor of Biological Sciences

My research interests lie in the area of control of development and atresia (apoptotic degeneration) of ovarian follicles in animals (invertebrates, fish, rats, hamsters, guinea pigs, primates). My laboratory evaluates effects of estrogens, follicle-stimulating hormone, growth factors, and most recently gold nanoparticles on the induction of atresia, studied in vivo and on follicle cells and oocytes in vitro; and the regulation of estrogen receptor function and fertility by endocrine-disrupting pollutants such as dioxins.

I am a member of the Nanotoxicology Research Group in the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) Children’s Environmental Health Sciences Center.
