Research interests

  • Cell and molecular biology of GW proteins, GW bodies and their relationship to exosomes, mRNA degradation, microRNA and mRNA silencing.
  • Cell and molecular biology of autoantigens in proteasomes, endosomes and the Golgi complex
  • Investigation of antigen-antibody profiles in patients with systemic rheumatic diseases.
  • Study of the pathogenic role of autoantibodies in systemic rheumatic diseases.
  • Mechanisms of xenobiotic-induced autoimmunity and the effect of environmental toxins on immunity and autoimmunity.
  • Mapping epitopes and determinants on autoantigens.
  • Autoantibodies in paraneoplastic and neurodegenerative syndromes.
  • Relationship of autoantigens to breast and prostate cancer.
  • New diagnostic technologies (antigen arrays, microfluidics, nanotechnology) in immunology.
  • Novel biomarkers (proteomics and metabolomics) in systemic autoimmune diseases.
