Professional Statement

Research in the Hodges lab focuses on altered epigenetic function in cancer and other diseases. We use interdisciplinary approaches, including epigenomics, live-cell super-resolution imaging, genome editing, and structural biology, to understand epigenetic systems in disease settings. Our research is especially focused on new technologies, for example, improving cell-culture tumor models, as well as single-cell and single-molecule methods.
