Main topics of the group: Our primary research focus aims to unravel the conundrum of epigenetic remodeling in pathological conditions harnessing humanized models of liver conditions. The projects in the lab are multidisciplinary and combine the analysis of genomic datasets (e.g. DNA methylation,16S microbiome) with epigenetic tools and innovative animal models.
