Research Summary:

Cells maintain tissue function and adapt to their environment by differentiating into new cell types or by changing their functional states. These cellular dynamics are mediated by changes to the epigenome, reorganizing chromatin to repress, poise, or activate genes. A major goal in our lab is to understand how cells navigate these fates, how the epigenome may trace lineage in disease, and how we may engineer epigenomes to acquire new cellular functions.
