Doctoral Student Research Research Interests: Gene transcription and cell metabolism are tightly woven processes. My research focuses on NR2F2, at the intersection of these processes. NR2F2 is a nuclear receptor under control of a metabolite ligand. Until recently, NR2F2 was an orphan, meaning its ligand was unknown. We now aim to demonstrate the mechanisms of NR2F2-ligand binding, and how this binding functions to regulate transcription.
