DNA MethylationDNA Methylation

Welcome to the Lab website! We share a broad interest in the interaction of the environment and the genetic landscape, particularly including both the epigenome and the genome itself. Our work aims to ask questions about how genes modify individual response to toxicants. More recently we have pioneered efforts to define the association of the environment with the epigenome, using distinct approaches to lead to a better understanding of the factors affecting DNA methylation. Most of the work in the lab approaches these scientific questions using the tools of molecular cancer epidemiology.
