Research: Dr. Pantopoulos studies the mechanisms that control mammalian iron homeostasis at the cellular and systemic level. His work involves examining a) post-transcriptional regulation of cellular iron metabolism by the IRE/IRP regulatory system, b) regulation of iron transport by hepcidin and hemojuvelin, c) iron metabolism and tumor growth and d) iron metabolism and hepatitis C virus (HCV).
