The British Society for Endocrinology recently awarded its prestigious Dale Medal to Kevin J. Catt, head of NICHD's Endocrinology and Reproduction Research Branch, for his contributions to endocrinology over the past 30 years. Catt, an international authority on the physiology and molecular biology of the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal and -gonadal systems, has been one of the 1,000 most-cited contemporary scientists for nearly half his career. His current research centers on signal transduction in pituitary gonadotrophs, mechanisms of go-nadotropin-releasing hormone secretion from hypothalamic neurons, and the mechanism of action of angiotensin II.
