OBLAST NAUČNOG INTERESOVANJA

  • Karakterizacija i funkcionalna analiza odabranih humanih SOX gena tokom razvića i u malignoj transformaciji, sa posebnim akcentom na SOX14 gen
  • Određivanje molekularnih mehanizama u kojima učestvuju odabrani SOX geni
  • Regulacija ekspresije odabranih humanih SOX gena
  • Uvođenje molekularno genetičkih testova u sferi reproduktivne medicine
  • Primena fluorescentne in situ hibridizacije (FISH) za detekciju numeričkih i strukturnih hromozomskih aberacija
