Areas of Interest

Cells emit molecular signals to "talk" to their neighbors. Those signals are interpreted by special sequences called enhancers in the genomes of the receiving cells, which regulate the expression of nearby genes. How do enhancers respond to signals during development, stem cell function, and disease, and how are those signals translated into precise changes in gene expression.
