Professor
The intestinal mucosa is exposed to fluctuations in oxygen levels due to constantly changing rates of oxygen demand and supply and its juxtaposition with the anoxic environment of the intestinal lumen. This frequently results in a state of hypoxia in the healthy mucosa even in the physiologic state. Furthermore, pathophysiologic hypoxia (which is more severe and extensive) is associated with chronic inflammatory diseases including inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α), a ubiquitously expressed regulator of cellular adaptation to hypoxia, is central to both the adaptive and the inflammatory responses of cells of the intestinal mucosa in IBD patients. In my PhD, I am interested in studying how microenvironmental factors in the intestine modulate intestinal epithelial HIF-1α activation and influence epithelial homeostasis.

In my lab, we are interested in the consequences of aneuploidy, an abnormal DNA content affecting 2 out of 3 cancers. By understanding how cancer cells make use of the advantages of aneuploidy and cope with the disadvantages of aneuploidy, we hope to get to therapies that can eradicate aneuploid cancers.
