Molecular Biology and Cancer Genetics

Dr. Collins has two major areas of study:(1) How transcription factor (TF) sculpt the epigenome of human lymphocytes, especially Natural Killer cells, and if we can use these epigenetic footprints to ‘reverse engineer’ regulatory pathways. Dr. Collins hopes to use this comprehensive ‘omics approach to identify pathways relevant to optimizing NK-mediated immunotherapy. (2) How the location of a double strand break determines the chromatin-associated DNA Damage Response, which is required to prevent end disassociation and minimize chromosomal rearrangements.
