Research Interests

A major interest of this laboratory is an understanding of the regulation of gene expression in the nervous system. Specifically, our interest is focused on the role of transcription factor NF-kB in neurons, glia and neural stem cells. We use expression profiling to gain some insight in transcriptional regulation in all of our main research topics. In this regard expression profiles are analyzed with laboratory made microarrays and verified in several biological assays.
