Dr. Alexander Hoffmann's researchis focused on the I?B/NF-?B signaling pathway, which plays critical roles in inflammation, immunity, stress responses and many human diseases such as cancer, immunodeficiencies and arthritis. A currentkey goal is to elucidate signal processing mechanisms within the I?B/NF-?B pathway and the specificity of its components as they relate to the stimulus-specific, gene-specific, and cell type-specific responses underlying diverse physiological functions.
