Research Interest

The Asangani Lab is affiliated with the Department of Cancer Biology at the Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia. Our lab investigates how epigenetic regulators, such as chromatin modifying enzymes and chromatin-associated proteins, cooperate with transcription factors to orchestrate transcriptional addiction in cancer cells. We aim to translate this knowledge into clinical tools by developing novel diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic strategies.
