New Faculty Member: Margarida A. Santos, Ph.D.
Dr. Santos recently joined the Department of Epigenetics and Molecular Carcinogenesis as a new assistant professor. Her laboratory studies the DNA damage response and the epigenetic regulation of normal and cancer stem cells using the hematopoietic system. She uses this model for two reasons: 1) it is a well-established system for adult stem cell studies; and 2) its dynamic nature places it in a vulnerable position with respect to genomic damage during DNA replication.
