My team has been working on signaling pathways, regulation of gene expression and hepatitis B virus in the control of cell proliferation, differentiation, death and transformation in the liver. The work of the team is focusing on how intricate molecular networks function through crosstalk and feedback links and how disruptions in cellular signaling lead to liver diseases and tumor development.
Molecular mechanisms regulating hepatitis B virus replication and liver carcinogenesis
Despite the existence of safe and efficient vaccines for more than twenty-five years, hepatitis B remains a public health problem of worldwide importance. It is currently estimated that 240 million people are chronic carriers […]
