Overview

Nagarajan lab is interested in unravelling the mechanisms of enhancer regulation and the role of transcription factors in mediating the progression to drug resistance and metastasis in aggressive cancers. We utilise single cell analyses, functional genomic technologies, quantitative chromatin-based proteomics and CRISPR-Cas9 assays to decipher the mechanisms of transcription.
