Welcome to the Glass Lab!
In the Glass Lab, we are interested in understanding how epigenetic signaling regulates gene expression, and how alterations in these pathways are involved in disease development. In particular, we are investigating the molecular mechanisms driving the recognition of histone post-translational modifications.
The combinations of marks that make up the histone code have been difficult to decipher, and how multiple modifications modulate protein recognition is not well understood. We aim to determine how physiologically abundant combinations of histone modifications regulate chromatin reader activity to influence disease progression. To address our research questions, we use a diversity of approaches in molecular biology, genomics, biochemistry, biophysics, and proteomics.
For those interested in joining our lab, please note that scholarships are available for Master’s and Ph.D. students.
