Understanding the neuroendocrine mechanisms which are important in the regulation of food intake, the mechanisms by which gut hormones mediate their effect, identification of the novel hormone kisspeptin as a potential novel therapy for infertility.

Professor Dhillo's research has shown that kisspeptin can be used safely and effectively in IVF treatment for women with infertility. He was awarded the Royal College of Physicians Goulstonian Lectureship (2010) and the Society for Endocrinology Medal (2015) for this work. He has also received the Royal College of Physicians Linacre Medal through his research that identified that administration of gut hormones to human volunteers can alter neuronal activity in brain reward areas which control food intake.
