Best Stem Cell Research Labs in US-#9
Yi Zhang is a leader in the burgeoning field of epigenetics. His lab recently has made a series of important ground discoveries for understanding the interactions between the chromatin modifications and the control of gene expressions.
He is interested in how epigenetic-mediated dynamic changes in chromatin structure affect gene expression, cell lineage commitment, and cancer development. He also wants to explore the role of epigenetic modification in stem cell biology, including defining the marks that commit and maintain differentiated cells and those that may change a specialized cell into a stem cell or other type of cell.

His recent publications: (I have to say: this lab works like publishing machine! The bottom-line is JBC...)
