JCCC “Leaders in the Field” Research Seminar Featuring Dr. Karen Adelman
Pausing of RNA Polymerase II: Implications for Signal-Responsive Gene Expression
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Karen Adelman, Ph.D.
Senior Investigator, Laboratory of Molecular Carcinogenesis
National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences
The Adelman laboratory investigates the dynamic interplay between signals from the environment and transcription by RNA polymerase II (Pol II). The group uses genomic approaches in Drosophila and murine model systems to quantify the alterations in Pol II distribution, gene expression, and epigenetic chromatin signatures that occur when a cell receives specific stimuli from the environment.
Light lunch served.
