Our main focus is to understand the molecular organization and function of chromatin, the DNA-protein complex which organizes the eukaryotic genome and regulates gene expression, using a combination of chemistry and biophysics.


There are open positions for PhD students!

If you are interested to perform a PhD thesis on the chemical biology and biophysics of chromatin or microtubules, directly contact: [email protected]
