Jonathan T. Busada
Institut Pasteur de Bangui
Ph.D., is Chief of the Signal Transduction Laboratory and head of the Molecular Endocrinology Group. The group studies steroid hormones, which regulate tissue-specific gene expression in animals via receptor dependent intracellular signal transduction pathways.
Major areas of research: Glucocorticoid receptors and their actions on the inflammatory response Regulation of apoptosis in normal and neoplastic cells Animal models for studying glucocorticoid actions
Current projects: Mutual interference of signaling between the glucocorticoid receptor and NF-κB The role of glucocorticoid receptor phosphorylation in signal transduction The transcriptional and translational regulation of glucocorticoid receptor gene expression
