Drosophila disease models and (epi)genetic analysis

Our research group embodies a multidisciplinary approach, encompassing diverse research lines that delve into both basic and translational research. Our work primarily revolves around two key research areas

  • Utilizing Drosophila as a model organism to delve into the genetic and biological underpinnings of human diseases, with a particular emphasis on metastatic colorectal cancer.
  • Delving into the comprehensive characterization of genetic and epigenetic alterations in complex traits, discerning their involvement in disease susceptibility and progression.
