Research in my laboratory is designed to gain general mechanistic insight into the role of Trr/MLL3/MLL4 in the regulation of gene expression and enhancer-mediated processes and attempts to address the question how misregulation of Trr/MLL3/MLL4-dependent enhancer function contributes to human disease such as cancer. To this end we are utilizing both Drosophila and mammalian cell culture systems combined with genetic approaches in Drosophila and biochemical in vitro studies.
