Scope of the journal

Hormonal Studies  includes detailed study on both plant and animal hormones, that encompasses  production and/or synthesis process, metabolic action on signaling pathways, receptors and operators regulating the hormonal action, their deficiency, effects and treatment.

Dr. Masayoshi Yamaguchi Ph.D is a retired professor at University of Shizuoka, Shizuoka, Japan and Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), USA.  He has received Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Sciences from Shizuoka College of Pharmacy, Japan. Dr. Yamaguchi is engaged in the fields of bone and calcium endocrinology and cell calcium signaling. He has discovered two novel proteins and genes; cell signaling suppressor protein (named regucalcin; 1978) and transcriptional factor RGPR-p117 (regucalcin gene promoter region-related protein; 2001) in mammalian cells. His research focused on cell signaling mechanism, bone biology, nutritional factor and osteoporosis prevention, diabetic osteoporosis, and cancer bone metastasis and osteolysis.

Dr. Kazuyoshi Tsutsui is currently working as a Professor in the Department of Biology, Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan. He is also known as the discoverer of gonadotropin-inhibitory hormone (GnIH) and has opened a new research field in reproductive neuroendocrinology from a novel standpoint. His research interest includes neuroendocrinology, neuropeptides and neurosteroids.

Dr. Alessandro Antonelli is currently working as a Professor in the Department of Clinical and Experimental Medicine, University of Pisa, Italy. He is also a member of International Scientific Associations (Endocrine Society, European Thyroid Association, New York Academy of Sciences, Italian Endocrine Association, etc.). His research interest includes thyroid, thyroid autoimmunity, thyroid cancer and chemokines.

Dr. Eduardo J. Spinedi is currently working in CENEXA as Principal Investigator of CONICET-UNLP, La Plata Medical School, Argentina.
