Our research is focused on metabolic and reproductive processes and their genetic regulation. Transcriptional regulators are at the center of our investigations.
In particular, we have started to look how metabolic changes influence the epigenetic landscape by modulating the transcriptional responses to adapt to environmental conditions.
With a series of mouse models for human diseases that we created over the last years, we are now in a position to dissect even complicated physiological questions at the organismal level.
These are the fields we are currently working on:
