Dr. Vanden Heuvel's research focuses on the emerging disciplines of molecular toxicology and nutrigenomics. He is interested in nuclear receptors (NR), such as the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs), that play important roles in both toxicology and nutrition. In particular, the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs; PPARa, ß/d and ?) are of interest as they serve key roles in toxicology, carcinogenesis and nutrition. Dr. Vanden Heuvel studies the ligands of these receptors, the genes they affect, and the physiological consequences of their activation.
