Mouse Model

Adjacent to directly human related research, our laboratory is interested to uncover the mechanisms of sustained versus resolution of inflammation in murine models.
We are interested in various posttranslational modifications of proteins, such as phosphorylation, ubiquitination and their effect on the gene transcription factors, signal transduction that modulate cellular responses and cellular bioenergetics.
