Biographical Info

Lab

In our laboratory, we study the effects of intermittent hypoxia/HIFs on tumor cell clonogenicity, differentiation and tumorigenicity using in vitro and in vivo approaches. These studies should generate major insights into the pathogenesis of intermittent hypoxia-induced alterations in neuroblastoma tumors and in turn should suggest novel targets for therapeutic interventions.
