Our main interest is transcriptional regulation of the mammalian cell cycle by the DREAM complex and Myb-MuvB (MMB). MMB together with the B-MYB transcription factor is a master activator of genes required for mitosis and cytokinesis.

We use biochemical and genetic methods to understand how DREAM, MuvB, B-MYB and its target genes contribute to normal proliferation, development and tumorigenesis.
