My research is focused in the epigenetic markers, molecules that are transmitted during cell division that lead to changes in gene expression without changing the DNA sequence information (e.g. histones and their post-translational modifications). Therefore, epigenetic markers are molecules that provide memory to essential processes such as development, cell differentiation and the renewal of adult stem cells. Understanding how these molecules will allow the development of translational applications such as anti-inflammatory agents, anti-cancer agents and cell reprogramming for therapeutic purposes.
