Our lab focuses on mechanisms that regulate gene expression with a special emphasis on how the DNA-packaging structure of chromatin is manipulated during genomic processes. Our findings inform the study of cancer and other diseases, and ultimately drug discovery.
NewsOctober 2018Fun was had by all celebrating Payel Sen, Zhixun Dou, and Riley Graham’s last night on completing their tenure in the lab. Congratulations on your fantastic new positions!Congratulations to grad student Mariel Mendoza on being awarded an NIH Diversity Supplement grant from the NCI!September 2018Former president of Mexico, Felipe Calderon, visited our lab today to learn about epigenetics and our current researchPayel Sen presenting her latest data on cryptic transcription on senescence and aging at Cold Spring HarborWe welcome Paula Agudelo as a new postdoc!August 2018Check out our “sweetest chromatin” cover! Review from our postdoc Gabor Egervari on regulation of chromatin by metabolic enzymesFrom the cover Review by Shelley Berger and Zhimin Lu “Regulation of chromatin and gene expression by metabolic enzymes and metabolites”
