Research Description

We welcome applications from outstanding researchers eager to study chromatin dynamics during the ageing of the haematopoietic system at Dr. José Sardina’s Epigenetic control of haematopoiesis Group for the Beatriu de Pinós Fellowships Call.

Epigenetic Control of Haematopoiesis Group is working to uncover the molecular mechanisms governing blood cell fate decisions, with a special interest in those leading to the onset and development of myeloid malignancies. To address this goal, they are combining transcriptome (by RNA-seq) and epigenomic profiling (by WG(ox)BS-seq, ATAC-seq and ChIP-seq for histone marks) in primary blood samples with in-depth molecular studies (by CRISPR/Cas9 (epi)genome editing) in unique models of experimentally induced blood cell fate conversions.
