While I maintain an open mind to research going on in this diverse field, my interests mainly lie in cellular signaling and how the many pathways interact with one another to receive and transmit a signal. In particular, I am interested in the signaling pathways involved in the transcytosis, localization and expression of the enzyme β secretase, a key component involved in the pathology of Alzheimer’s Disease. However, I am also interested, on a more rudimentary level, in endocrinology and neurobiology.
