Alex Erkine laboratory
Two major directions:

1. Development of screening systems for drugs affecting HSF.

2. Investigation of chromatin remodeling mechanisms associated with gene activation / repression.

Molecular Biology: gel electrophoresis, cloning, mutagenesis, gene replacement,
RT-PCR, chromatin immuno-precipitation,
High throughput screening assay development
and others.

What students can expect from the lab rotation:

1. Obtainin skills in molecular biology techniques.

2. Exposure to the medical/pharmacology research ideology.

3. Participation in New Drug Discovery projects.
