Department of Biology, Emory University. Atlanta, USA

Victor Corces, from the Emory University, Atlanta, US, aims to understand epigenetic mechanisms controlling the expression of eukaryotic genes. He is interested in the role of the primary structure of the chromatin fiber as well as in its three-dimensional organization within the eukaryotic nucleus. His lab notably focus on the mechanisms that control this arrangement, with the idea that nuclear organization carries epigenetic information. He has been invited by François Le Dily (CRG).
