Research Interests
  • Genetic and epigenetic mechanisms of placental development;
  • Pseudomalignant properties of the developing placenta;
  • Functional role of EGFR splice variants during normal developmental processes and in the molecular basis of tumorigenesis, with emphasis on women's cancer.
  • System biology of EGF- and EGFR family signaling network and the contribution of alternative splicing and post-translation modifications to the complexity of the network.
