It’s been a very busy summer, and so I’ve been getting really behind on my blogging! For my first entry I thought I’d go into my work from the beginning of the summer.

Thyroid hormone, abbreviated T3, is critical in many bodily processes, ranging from roles in early development to regulating metabolism, heart rate, and homeostasis. T3 acts through the thyroid hormone receptor (TR), which acts as an activator or repressor of gene transcription depending on the binding of its T3 ligand. While TR is localized to the…
