Bianco Lab – Deiodinase

Antonio Bianco MD PhD is interested in understanding the aspects of thyroid hormone action that involve the deiodinases D1, D2 and D3. The BiancoLab at University of Chicago investigates the physiological roles played by these enzymes and their involvement in disease mechanisms. Knowledge obtained from these studies will help develop therapies that preserve thyroid hormone homeostasis in patients with hypothyroidism.
