Studying long non-coding RNAs in development
The Cerase Lab is based at the Blizard Institute, Queen Mary University of London and is part of the Barts and the London, School of Medicine and Dentistry. Using different experimental approaches, the team is currently working on X Chromosome inactivation (XCI) and XCI reversal. The lab is also interested in X-linked neurodevelopmental disorders such as Rett and CDKL5 syndromes and female-biased neurological disorders. The long-term lab plan is to study the epigenetic basis of brain development in health and disease, focusing on the role of lncRNAs and chromatin architecture.
