Title: "Epigenetic modification pathways: their function and misconduct in cancer"

Chromatin is decorated with many different types of modification on histones and on DNA. These can potentially effect any biological process. Our lab is involved in identifying and characterising modifications of histones, primarily concentrating on their role in transcription. Our interest is fueled by the fact that many of these modification pathways are deregulated in cancer. We are keen to understand how miss-regulation generates uncontrolled cell growth and in finding small molecule inhibitors that can target the damaged pathway in cancer cells.
