Ivan Marazzi, PhD
- ASSISTANT PROFESSOR | Microbiology
Research Topics:Epigenetics, Inflammation
The Marazzi lab studies epigenetic- and chromatin- mediated control of gene expression in the context of cellular response to pathogens or cellular differentiation. We are interested in proteins and non-coding RNA that play a role in controlling cell response and cell fate. We use biochemistry and next generation sequencing technique to understand molecular mechanisms and genome-wide effects of known and novel candidate genes.
