Scientific summary

I am interested in the molecular mechanisms involved in the control of apoptosis in brain tumors. This includes the control of the acitvities of members of the bCL-2 family by lipids, glucose metabolism and epigenetic regulation. Our studies belong to both basic and translational researches.
