The Tapscott Lab is composed of an interactive group of scientists investigating lineage specification and cell differentiation. The lab focuses on gene transcription in a chromatin context in normal development and disease. Areas of current interest include the regulation of early stem cell programs in development and cancers, including transcriptional and translational reprogramming, to identify the molecular bases of totipotency, pluripotency, specification, and differentiation. Findings from model developmental systems are applied to understand human diseases, including cancers and degenerative diseases.
