Research Interests

Professor Young is a clinical and translational researcher focused on the human reproduction and particularly in congenital hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and Kallmann syndrome.  Since 20 years his investigative approach is collaborative and multidisciplinary, spanning the fields of endocrine reproductive disorders at the diagnostic, care, hormonal exploration and human genetics levels. His research projects include: 1) elucidating the genetics of puberty and hypogonadism in both genders and 2) studying and confront the clinical, morphological, hormonal and genetic tools in order to improve diagnosis and care in teenagers, women and men with reproductive endocrine disorders.  Professor Young's work delineating the phenotypic spectrum and molecular basis of GnRH and/or gonadotropin deficiencies have been published in leading scientific journals.

Clinical Expertise

His clinical practice over 25 years covers the spectrum of reproductive endocrinology, including delayed puberty, amenorrhea as well as hypogonadism and infertility in both genders. He also has extensive experience in the treatment of male and female hypogonadism and care of women with primary and secondary amenorrhea.
