Ali Shilatifard

Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. Chicago, USA



Ali Shilatifard, from the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, in Chigago, US,  is studying the molecular machinery for histone modifications in yeast, Drosophila and human cells. In particular, he is interested in understanding the biochemical and molecular mechanisms of rearrangement-based leukemia and in providing insights into how translocations affect cellular division by altering gene expression.

He has been invited by Luciano Di Croce (CRG).
