Csilla Molnár is a PhD student in the laboratory of Dr. Hrabovszky. This laboratory investigates the neuronal and hormonal mechanisms of the neuroendocrine control of reproduction. They focus on the central actions of estrogen, with special respect to the hormonal and neuronal regulation of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) neurons during positive and negative estrogen feedback. This research activity extends to the characterization of additional estrogen-receptive neuronal systems in rodent and human brains. In particular, this research activity focuses on sex- and age-dependent neuroanatomical changes of the human kisspeptin and neurokinin B neuronal system.
Csilla Molnár is a biologist trained in neurobiology and physiology. For her graduate work she primarily uses neuroanatomical approaches, including immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization.In additon, her research requires wide expertise in molecular techniques (quantitative PCR, cloning techniques, Western blot, etc.) in studies aimed at understanding the central regulation of the the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis and the genomic/non-genomic actions of sex steroid hormones in the brain.
