Chromatin biology - Eskeland

The chromatin biology group focuses on epigenetic regulation in embryonic stem cells and cancer.

The main interest in our lab is to understand how gene activity is regulated by local composition (histone modifications and variants), chromatin structure and nuclear organisation. We uniquely combine in vitro and in vivo approaches to study these epigenetic mechanisms during in embryonic stem cell differentiation, in cancer cells and after exposure to drugs.

We are part of PharmaTox strategic research initiative and the Centre for Cancer Cell Reprogramming.
