4D+ Genome Lab

Data Guided Control

Research

The work in our lab is focused on the dynamics of genome organization in human cells, with emphasis on gaining a deeper understanding of how the cell cycle guides cell fate determination. We are developing genomic and imaging technologies for determining the natural dynamics of the cell cycle and building a data guided mathematical foundation. Our long term goal is to develop strategies for direct reprogramming of normal and abnormal cells
