The Ezhkova lab is working on uncovering transcriptional and epigenetic regulators of epithelial stem cells. Our goal is to understand how epithelial stem cells are normally regulated during development and in the adult organism. We are also interested in determining how the function of epithelial stem cells changes in diseases, including cancer, and during aging

Ongoing projects

  • The role of epigenetic regulators in epidermal stem cell control

  • Merkel cell development and Merkel cell carcinoma

  • Epigenetic regulation in lingual epithelium development

  • Investigating the epigenetic landscape of epidermal sub-lineages
