Thomas Fazzio, PhD

Research Focus - Mechanisms of Gene Regulation in Development and Disease

  • Understanding the developmental functions of ATP-dependent nucleosome-remodeling factors, which constitute the most highly mutated classes of genes in cancer
  • Developing new genomic technologies for the study of rare cell populations in development and disease
  • Characterizing the functions and regulation of the Tip60-p400 complex, a histone acetyltransferase and nucleosome-remodeling enzyme that is mutated in some cancers   
  • Elucidating the mechanisms of chromatin remodeling in stem cells and cell fate specification

Representative Publication
