JCCC Leaders in the Field Seminar featuring Dr. Ali Shilatifard

Principles of epigenetics and chromatin in development and human disease

Presented by
Ali Shilatifard, Ph.D.
Professor, Harvard Medical School, Stem Cell Program, Department of Genetics, Harvard Medical School
Harvard Stem Cell Institute

Dr. Ali Shilatifard's research focuses on the regulation of gene transcription by RNA polymerase II, which is critical for development and differentiation, and its misregulation contributes to the pathogenesis of many cancers, including leukemia. His lab seeks to define the molecular mechanisms underlying leukemogenesis and to identify potential targets for therapy through detailed studies of proteins and protein complexes that regulate chromatin modifications, transcription initiation, and transcription elongation.
