Research Interests

The Knoepfler Lab conducts developmental biology, stem cell, and cancer research with a focus on chromatin and epigenetic mechanisms. We are particularly interested in regulation of normal brain growth and how epigenomic programming goes awry in childhood brain tumors and microcephaly.
