Professor

  • University of Michigan Medical School
  • Department of Pathology
  • Department of Biological Chemistry
The main research interest of Dou laboratory is to understand how histone modifying enzymes are regulated and how histone modifications play a deterministic role in cell fate transition. We use multi-disciplinary approach in carrying out both basic and translational research.
Associate Professor
  • University of Michigan Medical School
  • Department of Human Genetics

We strive to elucidate principles of epigenetic inheritance through the study of X-chromosome inactivation, which is a paragon of epigenetic transcriptional regulation.

 

Assistant Professor
  • University of Michigan Medical School
  • Department of Biological Chemistry

The main research focus of Cho laboratory is to understand important epigenetic regulation and underlying molecular mechanisms by studying the structures of key proteins or protein complexes using X-ray crystallography and single particle cryo-electron microscopy.

Assistant Professor
  • University of Michigan Medical School
  • Department of Human Genetics

Our goal is to elucidate chromatin regulatory mechanisms engaged in cognitive development and function. These studies may lay a foundation for amelioration of cognitive deficits.

 

Assistant Professor

Using yeast as a model system, my laboratory takes a highly interdisciplinary perspective that synthesizes genetics, biochemistry and biophysical approaches to define how cells encode and transmit heritable patterns of gene expression.
