Dr. Quinton is a clinician and researcher with a longstanding interest in genes and phenotypes in hypogonadotropic hypogonadism. His observations have contributed to an appreciation of the plasticity of the GnRH axis. Genetically-based hypogonadotropic hypogonadism may remit/relapse and thus not always be permanent; functional/stress-related hypognadotropic hypogonadism may have a genetic component. GnRH neurons are present in the adult human olfactory mucosa and, if they could be induced to migrate, could potentially repopulate a depleted hypothalamic population. His investigative approach is patient-based, collaborative and multidisciplinary.
His clinical practice covers the spectrum of endocrinology, including pituitary, adrenal, thyroid, gonadal, and metabolic bone disease. He has particular experience in the management of male hypogonadism.
