Research Focus

We investigate biological processes that modulate genome plasticity, i.e. the stability of the genetic and epigenetic codes of cell identity. Our objective is to provide a thorough understanding of the molecular mechanisms involved and the consequences of their dysfunction for cell fate, transformation and cancer.
