Our laboratory is proud to be part of the Genetics & Genome Biology program at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), and the Department of Molecular Genetics at the University of Toronto. We are located in the state-of-the-art Peter Gilgan Centre for Research & Learning in downtown Toronto.

Our research focuses on histones, histone chaperone proteins, and on the mechanisms of epigenetic inheritance: self-perpetuating changes on chromatin that influence gene expression independently of DNA sequence. This is primarily done through a combination of biochemical, biophysical, cell and molecular biology approaches. Our basic biology research is further complemented with close collaborations with clinical groups here at SickKids.
