Marc J. Tetel Professor of Neuroscience Wellesley College

Professor Marc Tetel is a professor of neuroscience and head of the Tetel Lab at Wellesley College. His lab investigates how the ovarian hormones, estradiol and progesterone, act in the brain to regulate gene expression and behavior in rodents. His research focuses on how receptors for these hormones interact with coregulators to activate behaviorally-relevant genes in specific brain regions. More recently, Professor Tetel and his team have taken a proteomics-based approach to investigate which proteins from the brain interact with estrogen and progestin receptors. One goal of their research is to use mass spectrometry to identify novel proteins that function in hormone action in the brain and other steroid-sensitive tissues. By enhancing knowledge of basic hormone mechanisms, he believes we may better understand how hormones impact diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease, breast cancer, and prostate cancer. Professor Tetel received his B.A. from Northwestern University before completing a Ph.D. at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
