Dr. Stanton's lab’s main interests relate to (1) understanding chromatin activation in childhood rhabdomyosarcoma, (2) understanding how epigenetic repression influences genome organization in AML, and (3) interdisciplinary approaches for new methods in systems epigenetics.

While pediatric cancers often have low mutational burden, alterations can drive changes in the epigenetic landscape. Our team has a special interest in understanding the central determinants for 3D genome organization in cancer, defining how chromatin interactions change in human disease, and for investigating how the epigenome interacts with chemotherapeutics.
