Research in the Spencer lab is a combination of experimental and computational science that is focused on the common theme of the genetics, genomics, and epigenetics of acute myeloid leukemia. We have specific expertise in DNA methylation, 3D genome architecture, and HOX gene expression and regulation in AML, although we are broadly interested in epigenetics and gene regulation in cancer. We also have extensive experience using genomic technologies to make observations in primary human samples to understand fundamental mechanisms of cancer genomics.
We use a range of experimental systems and techniques in our lab, including:
We currently have open positions for PhD students and Postdocs to join the team (more info) !
