Mr. Stephen Armstrong

Main Areas of Expertise Pharmacology; Endocrinology; Molecular biology; Cell signalling Secondary Areas of Expertise Molecular neuroscience; Cancer biology Biography Dr. Stephen Armstrong's doctorate focused on gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) receptor signaling and the neuroendocrine control of reproduction, and he identified novel mechanisms of GnRH pulse frequency decoding. He performed post-doctoral research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Bethesda, MD, USA, where he investigated mechanisms of steroid hormone action at a molecular level and characterised a transgenic mouse (with a deletion of TTLL5/STAMP, a tubulin tyrosine ligase-like protein and steroid hormone cofactor) that displayed a phenotype of male infertility. Dr. Armstrong then performed post-doctoral research at the University of Western Australia, where he investigated G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) pharmacology. He also performed contract research for industry-leading drug discovery companies.
