2017 - Fellow of the Royal Society, United Kingdom
His primary areas of investigation include Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Corticosterone, Vasopressin and Glucocorticoid. His work in Hormone, Anterior pituitary, Pituitary gland, Corticotropin-releasing hormone and Glucocorticoid receptor is related to Internal medicine. His studies in Hypothalamus, Circadian rhythm, Ultradian rhythm, Oxytocin and Hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis are all subfields of Endocrinology research.
His Corticosterone research integrates issues from Blood sampling, Lactation, Hippocampus and Chronic stress. Stafford L. Lightman combines subjects such as Neuropeptide, Parvocellular cell and Ovariectomized rat with his study of Vasopressin. His study on Glucocorticoid also encompasses disciplines like
His primary areas of study are Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Vasopressin, Glucocorticoid and Corticosterone. His research on Internal medicine frequently connects to adjacent areas such as In situ hybridization. Many of his studies on Endocrinology involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Neuropeptide.
His research in Vasopressin intersects with topics in Arginine and Peptide hormone. His Glucocorticoid research includes elements of Hydrocortisone and Dexamethasone. His Corticosterone research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Blood sampling, Hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis and Adrenocorticotropic hormone.
Stafford L. Lightman focuses on Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Glucocorticoid, Ultradian rhythm and Circadian rhythm. His work on Internal medicine deals in particular with Adrenal cortex, Hydrocortisone, Hypothalamus, Amygdala and Kisspeptin. His Hormone, Adrenal gland, Pulsatile flow, Corticosterone and Basal study are his primary interests in Endocrinology.
His Adrenal gland research incorporates elements of Inflammation, Hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis, Immune system and Adrenocorticotropic hormone. Stafford L. Lightman has included themes like Glucocorticoid secretion, Regulation of gene expression, Gene and Homeostasis in his Glucocorticoid study. His Ultradian rhythm study combines topics in areas such as Adrenal steroid and Cortisol secretion.
Stafford L. Lightman mainly investigates Endocrinology, Internal medicine, Ultradian rhythm, Glucocorticoid and Neuroscience. His study in Endocrinology concentrates on Circadian rhythm, Hormone, Adrenal gland, Pulsatile flow and Adrenocorticotropic hormone. His research related to Basal, Kisspeptin, Estrous cycle, Inflammation and Amygdala might be considered part of Internal medicine.
His Ultradian rhythm study incorporates themes from Working memory, Attentional bias, Anterior pituitary and Stimulation. His studies deal with areas such as Hippocampal formation, Glucocorticoid secretion, Adrenal cortex and Hippocampus as well as Glucocorticoid. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Phenotype and Psychosis.
