Project Title: 
Developmental Abnormalities in Progeroid Syndromes

Research in this lab is focused in understanding the mechanisms that control the establishment of genome organization and function during development, as well as their alterations in human diseases. The researchers are exploiting differentiation protocols of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) derived from patients to model disease progression and genomic technologies to characterize nuclear organization. Particularly, they are interested in a group of rare disorders collectively known as premature aging syndromes with the long-term goal of unraveling the developmental alterations linked to the clinical manifestations of the disease and its connections to natural aging.
