Research Interests
Regulation of macrophage gene expression. Molecular and biochemical approaches are used to elucidate the mechanisms of action of transcription factors that mediate the biological effects of retinoic acid, vitamin D and other hormone-like molecules during macrophage development and terminal differentiation. These approaches are also used to investigate mechanisms of transcriptional control of macrophage-specific genes implicated to be involved in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and other diseases.
