We are interested in the mechanisms that maintain genome integrity. In particular we study the regulatory mechanisms that control the cell cycle, DNA replication, and DNA repair. Biochemical, genetic and cell biological methods in mammalian and yeast systems are combined in a multidisciplinary approach. The lab is part of the Genome Maintenance Program within the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center, Center in Molecular Toxicology, Vanderbilt Institute of Chemical Biology, and Department of Biochemistry at Vanderbilt University Medical School in Nashville, TN.
