JCCC SeminarDr. Terumi Kohwi-Shigematsu, Ph.D.

Presented by:

Terumi Kohwi-Shigematsu, Ph.D.
Senior Scientist, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
University of California, Berkeley

Dr. Kohwi-Shigematsu's lab is investigating how global reorganization of chromatin structure must take place in order for ES cells to differentiate into specific cell lineages. Her research is focused on studying a protein, SATB1, which functions as a chromatin organizer in thymocytes and activated T cells. Her lab is also interested in determining which sets of genes are targeted, how chromatin is functionally organized via looping, and how chromatin structure is marked by epigenetic modification during ES cell differentiation into the neuronal and T cell lineages.
