Decoding the

Cancer Epigenome

about

The Lauberth Lab research program utilizes a combination of approaches that include cutting-edge high-throughput NGS technologies, state of the art microscopy techniques, quantitative proteomics, biochemistry, and cell-based/genetic assays. We also employ powerful cell-free assays (consisting of >97 polypeptides) that fully reconstitute transcription on chromatin templates and are powerful in discerning direct (causal) effects of epigenetic and transcriptional regulatory mechanisms. More recently, we have established patient-derived colorectal tumor organoids (PDTO) co-cultured with immune cells to investigate how the crosstalk between mutp53-expressing tumor cells and immune cells contribute to metastatic phenotypes.
