Wiring of the unfolded protein response in normal cells and in disease.
Current Research Interests
– Study protein-RNA interactions operating during the ER stress response employing next generation sequencing coupled to biochemistry and cell biology methods.
– Study the re-wiring of the unfolded protein response in cancer cells employing ultra complex shRNA libraries to discover genetic vulnerabilities.
