Title: "Studying chromatin at the intersection between basic and translational research"

Speaker: Dr. Marcus Buschbeck
Principal Investigator, Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute, Barcelona

 

Summary of Marcus research interest

Epigenetic information is written in chromatin. But how exactly do epigenetic mechanisms operate on the molecular level? How do chromatin alterations contribute to cell fate transitions? How does the environment influence these processes? And how does the metabolic state of a cell impact on its chromatin structure and its epigenetic memory?

These are questions we address in the lab. Studying stem cells and cancer we focus on molecular aspects of epigenetic regulation and on the question whether we can translate this knowledge into diagnostic and therapeutic tools for the management of diseases such as leukemia and myelodysplastic syndrome.
