About the Center for Comparative & Molecular Endocrinology (CME):
UNH established the Center for Molecular and Comparative Endocrinology in July 2008. The foci of the center include, but were not limited to, Environmental Endocrinology, Reproductive Biology and the Evolution and Regulation of Physiological Phenomena. The center sought to expand the capacity and synergism of "systems endocrinology and physiology" research that links to other areas of UNH and regional medical schools.
The mission of the Center for Molecular and Comparative Endocrinology focused on the molecular components shared by endocrine systems, especially in their dynamic interactions. We sought to understand the structure of the system such as gene regulatory and biochemical networks; to understand the dynamics of the system both quantitative and qualitative analysis; and to understand the control methods of the system.
