I originally created this page when I worked in the Gautier Lab at Columbia University. I learned about OpenWetWare from the Hoatlin Lab, and I've joined in order to contribute to the Gautier Lab site.

Laboratory of Jean Gautier, Columbia University, 2005-present

  • Studying the role of Fanconi anemia (FA) proteins in DNA replication and repair. I have been studying the molecular requirements for the recruitment of FA proteins to chromatin during unperturbed DNA replication. I have also been examining the role of FA proteins in the replication restart and DNA repair.

Laboratory of Giovanni Romeo, Hospital of Bologna, Italy, 2002-2003

  • Using RET tyrosine kinase mutants found Hirschsprung's disease and cancer predisposition syndromes, we studied the role of RET in enteric aganglionosis and caspase activation.

Sedivy Lab, Brown University, 2000-2002

  • Using the Shokat method, we engineered Raf-1 mutants with a mutated ATP-binding pocket that preferentially used orthogonal ATP analogs. Using these mutants, we investigated the downstream substrates of Raf-1.
