Our laboratory is broadly interested in the study of gene regulation and intercellular signaling during embryonic development. We study a family of regulatory proteins called nuclear hormone receptors and their ligands. These receptors are all members of the steroid receptor superfamily and are ligand-regulated transcription factors that regulate important events during embryonic development and adult physiology. Our research is currently supported by grants from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, Department of Defense, and the NSF. Previous support from the Environmental Protection Agency, National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, National Center for Research Resources, Department of Defense, National Cancer Institute, Avon Breast Cancer Foundation, California Cancer Research Committee, the UC Toxic substances Research and Training Program, the Minamata Environmental Trust and Eisai Co., Ltd. were greatly appreciated.
