Hnisz laboratory seeks to understand how transcriptional programs are established during development, how their corruption leads to human pathologies, and how this knowledge can be used for therapeutic manipulation of human disease genes. They use experimental and computational technologies to study gene control in development and cancer. They identify mechanisms that activate and repress genes that specify cell identity and they explore regulatory pathways that orchestrate gene expression programs and investigate how they enable switches in cell-heritable differentiation programs.
