Dr. Hernandez’s lab studies the monoamine serotonin and its role in the regulation of lactation. My project is specifically focused on physiological regulation at the level of the mammary gland, including calcium and serotonin receptor dynamics. This applies to dairy cows in that serotonin is a potential therapeutic target in the prevention of hypocalcemia.
