Research Interests

A novel approach to the study of globin gene switching:

  • Translational control
  • Structural features that modulate efficiency of translation of mRNA
  • Apoptosis in leukemia cells and its application to cancer therapy
  • Organizational of chromosomes in the nucleus (in collaboration with Dr. R. Nagele)
