SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:

Despite the fact, that first of all, I am interested in the intracellular signal transduction processes, leading to proliferation, differentiation or apoptosis of a cell, because some of these pathways were the main topic of our research group, I am also interested in neuroscience, since the cell line we studied in Hungary, the PC12 phaeochromocytoma cell line, is a neuronal differentiation model, and the cytokine we studied in Bruxelles, the IL-TIF can be founded in highest amount in the brain. I hope that I can use my knowledge in molecular biology in neural research.
