Endocrinology

Consisting of the pituitary, thyroid and parathyroid glands, the hypothalamus, pancreas, gonads and adrenal cortex, the endocrine system is a complex grouping of hormone producing glands that control body functions, including metabolism, body growth and sexual development. When these hormones fall out of balance, the effect on the body and the various medical disorders that result can be dangerous and sometimes deadly. With 16 full-time faculty and $5.3 million in National Institutes of Health funded research grants, the division's physicians, fellows and staff are dedicated to the science and medical specialty that surrounds the physiologic and pathologic relations of internal or hormonal secretions.
