Systems biology of cell fate decisions in normal and tumor cells
Our interest is to understand the mechanisms and dynamics of signal transduction, epigenetic (de)regulation and chromatin structure, which coordinate global gene expression programs in normal and cancer cells. Based on our expertise on nuclear receptors action we develop technologies and global systems biology approaches to identify comprehensive RNA profiles, transcription factor binding sites, epigenomes and chromatin interactomes from ultra-small sample sizes, and use integrative bioinformatics to identify functional gene “hubs” and decision points that dynamically coordinate gene programming. Our studies involve a plethora of genome-wide technologies and the corresponding development of bioinformatics tools.
A particular interest of our team is the integrative analysis of aberrations affecting signaling, epigenome, chromatin architecture and transcriptome upon tumorigenic transformation. In this context we identify targets and mechanisms, which are relevant for the development of novel therapeutic paradigms, and study the mechanisms and therapeutic potential of signaling drugs and epigenetic modulators.
Another emphasis of our work is to decipher the mechanisms underlying the cancer-selectivity of apoptogenic TRAIL signaling. Studies on the role of the senescence-mediated secretome on TRAIL action and the epigenetic alterations during cellular senescence address the link between cancer and aging.
