Research Interests I
am interested in understanding the signal transduction pathways that
regulate cell proliferation, apoptosis and differentiation. Currently I
am investigating the role of androgens during cell differentiation
using pluripotent stem cells as model system.

adipogenic differentiation in 3T3-L1 cells: nuclear translocation of
androgen receptor complex with ß-catenin and TCF4 may bypass canonical
Wnt signaling to downregulate adipogenic transcription factors. (In
