Cole Laboratory

Molecular Endocrinology

Welcome to the Cole Lab

We are studying the actions of two important steroid hormones, cortisol (a glucocorticoid) and aldosterone (a mineralocorticoid) that are secreted by the adrenal gland and regulate important aspects of systemic physiology and homeostasis, in humans and other mammals.

We're part of the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, and a member of the Development & Stem Cells and Cancer Program
and the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

Our research

The endocrine system controls cell-cell communication and coordinates all our daily activities from conception to death. Abnormalities in hormones, receptors and cell signalling pathways underpin many common human diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity. We are studying the actions of two important endogenous steroid hormones, cortisol (a glucocorticoid) and aldosterone (a mineralocorticoid) that synthesized are secreted by the adrenal gland, and then regulate important aspects of systemic physiology and homeostasis, in humans and other mammals.
