Areas of Expertise:
Rbf/E2f/Dp role during development

Research Organisms:
Drosophila melanogaster

 

Research Focus:

The E2F transcription factor regulates the expression of genes involved in a broad range of processes including cell cycle progression, cell differentiation and cell death. Our group recently discovered a novel role for E2F in the regulation of mitochondrial activity.
