Essential Functions and Responsibilities:

With a focus on epigenomics and signaling in squamous cancers, We are seeking highly motivated candidates who graduated recently with background in epigenetics and cancer biology.

The Saladi lab utilizes epigenetic approaches including ChIP-sequencing, ATAC-sequencing and chromosome confirmation capture, single cell epigenomics, patient derived organoids, to understand the epigenetic plasticity in tumors. The mechanism by which altered epigenome contributes to aberrant signaling is of major interest in the lab (Dev Cell 2014, Cancer Cell,2017, Dev Cell, 2018, Cell Reports, 2022). Our primary goal is to understand the fundamental mechanisms by which epigenetic plasticity and signaling networks contribute to tumorigenesis. We integrate epigenomic, transcriptomic and proteomic approaches coupled with in vivo and in silico analyses to address these questions.
