Qianben Wang
Professor of Pathology

My laboratory is primarily interested in understanding the epigenetic mechanisms driving progression of hormone-dependent cancers. We focus on studying how transcription factor-centered, multi-layer transcription regulatory networks drive hormone-dependent cancers, which involve transcription factors (e.g. nuclear hormone receptors, FOXA1, and GATA2), transcription coactivators (e.g. Mediator and histone acetyltransferases), and epigenetic regulators (e.g. histone modifications, chromatin looping and nucleosome positioning). My recent studies are designed to target transcriptional and epigenetic mechanisms discovered from the omics studies by integrating CRISPR technologies and nanotechnology.
