Research interests:

  • The mechanism of Ηypoxia inducible factor-2α (ΗIF-2α) regulation and his role in cellular homeostasis.
  • The contribution HIF-2α and HIF-1α in the cellular response of various forms physiologic or pathological stress.
  • Mechanisms of healthy and cancer cells in oxidative stress.
