Jiang Wu Lab

Our studies are mainly focused on two areas: epigenetic regulation of the Sonic Hedgehog (Shh) and the function of chromatin remodeling complexes.

We are interested in the function of chromatin regulation of signaling pathways important for neural development, brain tumor growth, and autism pathogenesis. In addition to the traditional genetic, molecular, and biochemical methods, we are employing advanced proteomic and genomic approaches to improve our understanding of the transcriptional regulation of these developmental important and cancer-related signaling pathways at the chromatin level.
