Associate Professor, Physiological Sciences - GIDP

Member of the Graduate Faculty

I have received broad training in human physiology, biochemistry, nutritional science, molecular biology and cell biology that I am now applying to the teaching and research of biomedical questions relevant to human diseases, including iron deficiency, hereditary hemochromatosis, neurodegeneration, and cancer. My goal as a teacher is to help students developing both the knowledge and the scientific thinking skills that could be applied to their study, research and daily life.The long-term goal of my research program is to advance the understanding of disease mechanisms, identify therapeutic target genes, and improve the life quality of patients.
