Welcome to The Romero Lab. Although decades of research have helped us understand how stress causes disease, we are focused in understanding how the vertebrate stress response helps wild animals survive in their natural habitats. We are then using this knowledge to help us understand how animals cope with natural and human-created changes in their habitats. Work in our lab is at the interface between Ecology, Physiology, and Endocrinology, with occasional applications to Conservation. Learn more >
