Research Interest

Dr. Leslie's laboratory investigates the molecular biology of hormone action and hormone receptors in reproductive tissues. Her greatest research contribution has focused on the response to steroid stimulation and the phenotypic and genomic mechanisms in endometrial cancer. New areas of focus include sub-cellular localization of progesterone receptors, proteomics as a tool for cancer screening, and progesterone receptor cross-talk with the growth factors and other signaling molecules.
