Laboratory of Epigenetics
The work in our laboratory is in the area of epigenetics and focuses on the relationship between chromatin structure/transcription and signaling/metabolism. Our long-term goal is to understand how intermediary metabolism affects histone acetylation and transcriptional regulation. Histone acetylation is a dynamic modification that affects chromatin structure and regulates diverse cellular functions, such as gene expression,
The work in this Laboratory has been significantly enhanced by the diligent and creative work of our students, who after graduating assumed positions at premier institutions (Rockefeller University, Harvard Medical School, Brown University, New York University, and the National Institutes of Health).
