Regulation of large-scale chromatin architecture in mammalian cells

Friday, January 31, 2020, 11.00 hours
Piet Borst Auditorium, Netherlands Cancer Institute, Amsterdam
Host: Heta Patel

Nick Gilbert
In mammalian cells DNA is wrapped around proteins to form chromatin. This protects DNA from damage and regulates gene transcription. Our lab is studying the protein and epigenetic factors that modify DNA and chromatin structure influencing gene expression and genome stability. A key goal of our research is to understand how changes in chromatin structure affect gene expression and genome stability in disease. These studies will help us to understand this process and develop future drugs to treat diseases like cancer.
