Description of Interests

In my lab we are interested in delineating the molecular mechanisms of progesterone action through its receptor, PR in the uterus. This is done in the context of normal endometrial differentiation, specifically, decidualization, as well as in uterine pathologies, such as endometriosis, endometrial cancer and uterine fibroids. Specifically, we are interested in studying PR function in relation to other signaling pathways and transcription factors.
