Transcriptional Control of Development by Hox Proteins

Current research in my lab is based on an integrated approach of advanced genomic, genetic, molecular, and biochemical methods together with extensive computational analysis and simulation to determine on the one hand how Hox proteins orchestrate different aspects of development, with a special focus on stem cell maintenance in the testis and nervous system development and morphogenesis, and, on the other hand, how they achieve the spatio-temporally restricted expression of their target genes in specific cell and tissue types. In addition, we have also started to identify and study processes involved in cancer formation and progression.
