James Hagman, PhD



Oncogenes and Tumor Suppressor Genes, Gene Regulation and Transcription Factors




National Jewish Health, Integrated Department of Immunology


Must have completed at least three years of college

Number of Openings: 1

Program Objective:

To determine how transcription factors and epigenetic regulators control gene expression in normal B lymphocyte development and leukemia.

Program Description:

The student will assist with studies of EBF, which functions as a "pioneer" factor in early B cell development.  EBF directs progenitor cells to become B cells.  This occurs, in part, due to EBF-dependent modifications of chromatin structure.
