Current Research and Scholarly Interests We employ an interdisciplinary approach to studies of biological systems, combining synthetic chemistry with biochemistry, cell biology, and structural biology. We invent tools for biology and we are motivated by approaches that enable new experiments with unprecedented control. These new techniques may also provide a window into mechanisms involved in maintaining cellular homeostasis. Protein quality control is a particular interest at present.

Professor of Molecular Pharmacology, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We analyze the mechanisms by which mammalian cells adapt to environmental changes, such as exposure to foreign chemicals, hypoxia, or hormones, by altering the transcription of specific sets of genes. We use both biohchemical and genetic approaches and many techniques in molecular and cellular biology. See: http://www.stanford.edu/group/whitlock/

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Research in our lab focuses on mechanisms of epigenetic regulation in differentiation and development. In particular, we are studying the function of histone modifying enzymes in embryonic stem cell self-renewal and in early cell fate decisions. We are interested in the role of chromatin modifications in establishment and maintenance of gene expression patterns during normal and pathological development, and in nuclear reprogramming.
