Our research investigates molecular and epigenetic mechanisms that regulate differential gene expression during cell fate specification. We use mouse embryogenesis as model system applying molecular, biochemical and genetic methods. Research projects in the laboratory comprise studies on 1) cell fate decisions during nervous system development, 2) the epigenetic silencing of one X chromosome early during female embryogenesis (X chromosome inactivation), and 3) mammary gland development, differentiation and breast cancer. The goal of our research is to understand how cell fate decisions are orchestrated and how disturbances lead to human disease.
