Research Interests

VDUP-1 (TBP-2) is a protein whose expression is decreased in tumors and increased following treatment with Vitamin D. VDUP-1 functions as an inhibitor of thioredoxin, which interacts with a number of transcription factors. Dr. Voigt is currently investigating the role of VDUP-1 in regulation of transcription factor activity and cell proliferation/differentiation in different cell types.
