Dr Rey is interested in basic and clinical aspects of the functioning of the gonadal axis during pre and postnatal development. Questions that arise from observations made in patients with pathologies that affect the testicle or ovary serve as the basis for the development of research projects that can clarify the causes or mechanisms that explain the pathology or that can help in its diagnosis or treatment.
