Researcher interests: Developmental biology: cell migration, intracellular localization of RNA in oocytes and embryos, formation of embryonic axes. Cell and molecular biology: intracellular RNA localization in somatic cells, regulation of mRNAs by VICKZ proteins, generation and use of aptamers for targeting cell surface antigens and small molecules. Cancer biology: role of VICKZ proteins in cancer progression and metastasis.
