Dr. Alok Deoraj has extensive teaching, research and management experience in academic and industry settings. His current primary focus is on teaching undergraduate, graduate and PhD students. Dr. Deoraj conducts research in the area of environmental toxicology to investigate the influence of complex environmental exposures on the neuroendocrine regulation (e.g., via Kisseptin, GABA and other neuropeptides) of Gonadotropin-releasing Hormone-II (GnRH-II) release and its downstream signaling on the timing of the onset of the puberty/adolescence. He is interested in finding whether timing of puberty is a risk factor for reproductive cancer and/or neurodegenerative diseases. His research may lead to identify exposome(s), environmental and epigenetic biomarkers which can be applied to conduct environmental health risk assessment for reproductive aging/cancer and neurodegenerative disorders.
