CANCELED: Arthur Skoultchi, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, "Controlling the Proliferation Versus Differentiation Decision in Normal and Malignant Blood Cells"

Dr. Skoultchi's laboratory is interested in understanding the mechanisms controlling mammalian development and cell differentiation. Their approach is to investigate systems in which these processes are disturbed, either by malignant transformation (leukemia) or by directed gene inactivation in mice and Drosophila. Currently there are three major projects underway in his lab: Molecular Mechanisms of Leukemia, Role of H1 Linker Histones and Chromatin Remodeling Factors in Chromatin Structure, DNA Methylation, Gene Expression and Development in Mice and Drosophila, and Human ES Cell Proliferation and Totipotency.
