Research Interest: 
Dr. Huet’s research focuses on understanding the role of gonadal steroids (primarily estrogen) in normal physiology and adult diseases and the effects of neonatal exposure to environmental toxicants on development and adult disease. The goals of the research are to a) gain understandings of these processes and thus allow for the development of methods to prevent or treat diseases b) determine the effects of environmental estrogens on early pregnancy and in adult diseases.
