My lab is interested in understanding the pathways and mechanisms utilized by hormones that lead to delayed aging and less age-related disease. Reduced signaling of the somatotropic axis results in increased cellular stress resistance, maintenance of a young DNA methylation profile, increased health span and extended life span in mice.

My lab investigates the neural-vascular interactions in early cortical development, focusing on the epigenetic mechanisms that regulate (1) intrinsic cell fate decisions and (2) microenvironmental influences on cell fate determination.

The overall goal of our research is to investigate epigenetic mechanisms underlying disease states. The basic questions that interest us are (a) how do epigenetic mechanisms regulate gene expression (b) what is the order of these changes, and (c) can we reverse these processes to better manage disease?

Our research focuses on elucidating mechanisms of behavioral disorders triggered by inflammatory gut-brain communication. Using a mouse model of milk allergy, we investigate molecular events, including transcriptomic and epigenetic changes, that may lead to brain dysfunction.

The lab seeks to understand the mechanisms of transcription-induced epigenetic reprogramming. Using various in vitro cell culture models, we are developing new concepts and technologies to determine how environmental influences and chemotherapy drugs affect normal cell differentiation and influence progression of cancer.

The long term goal of the my laboratory is to utilize potentially novel epigenetic mechanisms to promote post-injury neuronal survival and regenerative process outgrowth in vivoand utilize this knowledge to reverse age-induced alterations in the epigenetic landscape to promote neuronal survival and process outgrowth in the mature mammalian CNS.
