A long-term interest of our research is to delineate the mechanism of DSB repair and to ascertain its role in various DNA metabolic pathways. In particular, DSB repair takes place within complex organization of chromatin structures.

Research Interests:

  • detection and repair of DNA breaks with a focus on Homologous Recombination (HR) mediated DNA double-strand break (DSB) repair; interplay of DNA repair machinery and chromatin structures

Subject Areas:

  • Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry
  • Biology
