Professor of Biology
Professor Stathopoulos studies the cis-regulatory mechanisms that drive differential patterning in embryos and other tissues. Her lab is interested in questions such as how do transcription factors act in combination at cis-regulatory modules to support patterns of expression? Or how do cis-regulatory modules located on non-contiguous stretches of DNA coordinate their temporal action? Also, they are interested in how patterning of distinct cell types in the embryo controls cells' behaviors.
