Research interests in the lab

I was interested in the mechanisms underlying telomere length regulation in healthy and diseased cells. The goal of my project was to gain key mechanistic insights into crucial components, such as TPP1, that participate in telomere length regulation.

Home lab in Berkeley: Collins Lab

Research interests in the Hockemeyer lab:

I was interested in the regulation of telomerase recruitment to telomeres, and the dynamics of proteins at the telomere during recruitment.  I used gene targeting in human ES cells to specifically alter TPP1, a protein involved in this recruitment, to tease out its contributions to telomere maintenance.
