Our lab studies the molecular mechanisms of chromatin and gene regulation in stem cells and in the developing embryo. Specifically, we aim to dissect the crosstalk between intracellular signaling and chromatin in pluripotent stem cells. Epigenetic regulation is widely relevant to numerous cell types across organisms, particularly to stem/progenitor populations at the forefront of quiescence vs proliferation decisions in embryonic and adult tissues and disease states. Our research strategy integrates in vivo and in vitro techniques, biochemistry, imaging, molecular and developmental biology to study the above questions.
