Scientific summary

We are interested in mechanisms of gene regulation involved in development, function and pathology of the adrenal cortex. Our main scientific achievements include:

- characterization of the physiopathological role of transcription factor DAX-1 in adrenal cortex and embryonic stem cells;

- discovery of the role of transcription factor SF-1 in the pathogenesis of adrenocortical cancer;

- characterization of new drugs active against adrenocortical cancer cells;

- discovery of new mechanisms in the regulation of functional zonation and aldosterone production in the adrenal cortex.
