During my postdoctoral training at UC
Davis I will focus on the hormonal regulation of mammary
gland development and lactation, in particular on the role
of the prolactin receptor, both at the tissue level and at
the genetic level.
My PhD thesis work was part of the Dutch Milk Genomics
Initiative, and aimed at the identification of genes
involved in milk-fat composition.
In general, my research interests are mammary gland
development and lactation, milk synthesis and secretion,
pathway analysis, functional and physiological genomics.
