Integrative and single-cell genomics approaches to dissect cell fate decisions and genetic disorders

Davide Cacchiarelli

Leader of the Laboratory of Integrative Genomics at TIGEM (Telethon Institute of Genetics and Medicine), Assistant Investigator, Assistant Professor of Molecular Biology, Department of Translational Medicine, University of Naples Federico II, Italy

Our lab aims to identify the mechanisms controlling cell fate decisions during cellular differentiation, conversion and reprogramming, and how such processes are affected by genetic mutations of key regulatory proteins including transcription factors. To achieve this goal he proposes to integrate descriptive, functional and single-cell genomics to  dissect how genetic elements and their variants impinge on the temporal and spatial control of gene expression.
