Scientific summary

Genomic analyses revealed that the majority of human genes generate alternative transcripts (often encoding protein isoforms) through alternative splicing, alternative polyadenylation and alternative promoters. Since 2003, my primary research intererest has been on the role of alternative transcripts and their regulation by RNA-binding proteins, in cancer development and therapy. I recently contributed to the genome-wide analysis of mRNA isoforms regulation in breast cancer metastasis and in response to estrogen and genotoxic chemotherapeutic drugs.
