I have a broad background in stem cell and developmental biology with specific training and expertise in key research areas such as gene regulation and proteomic studies in pluripotent and cancer cells. My lab research includes transcriptional and epigenetic regulation of stem cell pluripotency and cellular reprogramming. We have also established a robust research program studying post-transcriptional regulation in stem cell and developmental biology. My lab research has laid the groundwork in studying protein interaction networks and transcriptional regulatory networks in pluripotent cells and dissecting molecular mechanisms underlying the establishment and maintenance of pluripotency.
