The major research activities of Dr. Brueggemeier focus in the areas of steroid chemistry and biochemistry, hormones and cancer, medicinal chemistry, and radiochemistry. Research approaches involve the application of expertise in steroid chemistry/biochemistry to the examination of steroid biosynthesis, metabolism, and action at the molecular level. Results from these interdisciplinary investigations will aid in understanding the molecular and biochemical role(s) of estrogens in hormone-dependent cancers and in the development of new approaches to treatment of hormone-dependent cancers.
