Student Project Titles List

Immunofluorescence Staining of H3K9me3 and Lamin B1 to explore the role of ATRX loss of function mutations in chromatin architecture of gliomas cells of origin

Research Areas

My research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying pediatric and adult gliomagenesis. I use a combined approach of genomic, molecular and functional analyses to uncover the factors driving glioma formation and progression. My overall goal is to provide new strategies to improve targeted therapy for this deadly disease.
