Brain Health Research Institute director, Dr. Michael Lehman, has been named the new Editor-in-Chief of the Fundamental and Mechanistic Neuroendocrinology (FMN) strand of the Journal of Neuroendocrinology, the premier international journal in the field in neuroendocrinology. Dr. Lehman has served as a Senior Editor of the Journal for almost 10 years and has made numerous contributions to the journal’s development. He also served as a Guest Editor for a Special Issue of the Journal celebrating the 50th anniversary of the discovery of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH), the master regulator of reproduction in humans and animals.
