Mag. Patrik Schwarz


Thesis titel: "The search and biological evaluation of modulators of retinoic acid receptor-related orphan receptors (RORs)"

Thesis outline: RORs (RAR-related orphan receptors) are ligand-dependent transcription factors belonging to the nuclear receptor superfamily involved in various biological pathways, ranging from metabolism to inflammation and cancer. Patrik is interested in the discovery and biological evaluation of novel ligands for RORs.
