Research interests

Research focusses on the development of enzymes capable of delivering targeted cytosine methylation to predetermined DNA sequences. We are using these enzymes to simulate the methylation patterns observed in cancer patients, to determine the actual role of DNA methylation in disease progression. An additional and emerging basic research program seeks to address the effects of gene mutations associated with epigenetic components of the cell, that are being increasingly found in leukaemia patients, in the desease process.

Research interests (short)

DNA methylation, epigenetics, histone signatures, targeted methylation, zinc finger technology
