Research topics & objectivesThe team’s objectives are to identify the mutations that characterise the early stages of the transformation of haematopoietic cells, to understand the network of underlying events of the transformation and to develop the experimental models that allow functional analyses and serve as preclinical models. In particular, the team is studying the role of the proteins TET2 and TET3 and of the epigenetic markers 5mC/5hmC in the differentiation between normal and malignant myeloid lineages and T lymphoid cells, as well as the cooperation between the mutations TET2 and DNMT3A in the transformation of haematopoietic cells.
TET2 a,d normal and pathological haematopoiesis.
