RNA polymerase III (Pol III) upregulation is a hallmark of cancer, suggesting increased Pol III activity, which produces tRNA, 5S rRNA, and other small RNA species needed for protein accumulation, is a requirement for cancer cell proliferation. Using a combinatorial...

Supriya Prasanth

Supriya Prasanth’s laboratory is focused on understanding how replication initiation is coordinated with chromatin organization and cell cycle progression. Defects in accurate replication and faithful chromosome segregation cause genomic instability, a hallmark...

Kannanganattu Prasanth

Kannanganattu Prasanth’s laboratory has significantly contributed to understanding lncRNA’s role in gene expression. His lab explores the molecular mechanism by which the oncogenic lncRNA, MALAT1, controls alternative splicing (AS) of pre-mRNA and utilizes...
Brian Freeman

Brian Freeman

Brian Freeman’s research explores genomics, protein dynamics, protein-nucleic acid interactions, proteomics, and regulation of gene expression. More specifically, his lab investigates the impact of the Hsp90 molecular chaperone system on genomic pathways supporting...
