Preceptor


Category:

Oncogenes and Tumor Suppressor Genes, Gene Regulation and Transcription Factors

Specialty:

Epigenetics

Location:

National Jewish Health, Department of Biomedical Research

Prerequisites:

Must have completed at least three years of college

Number of Openings: 1

Program Objective:

To determine how epigenetic regulators control gene expression in normal B lymphocyte development and leukemias. 

Program Description:

The student will assist with studies of novel epigenetic pathway that  1) normally turns genes off,  2) is disrupted in leukemia, and 3) controls cell identity, and 3) controls cell identity. In absence of this regulation, many genes are activated out of context with deleterious effects on the host.
