Lung development; cell proliferation; carcinogenesis; transcriptional regulation of gene expression.


Transcriptional regulation of epithelial and endothelial cell functions during lung embryonic development and lung carcinogenesis; winged helix/forkhead box (Fox) proteins and their role in regulating cell signaling pathways required for cellular proliferation, differentiation, motility and survival; identify and increase understanding of currently unknown mechanisms that cause human lung malformations and promote lung cancer formation.
