Epigenetics and Stem Cells

We aim to unlock a cell's full potential by understanding how a single cell is able to give rise to all the cells in our body at the beginning of life.

Our Research Groups

Torres-Padilla Lab

Epigenetics and cell-fate in early mammalian development

We combine high-resolution microscopy with single-cell genomics to study the epigenetic principles underlying cellular reprogramming in the mouse embryo.

Hamperl Lab

Chromosome dynamics and genome stability

We study how DNA replication and transcription can occur simultaneously without major accidents that cause DNA damage and genome instability.

Hörmanseder Lab

Maintaining and Reprogramming Cell Fates

We combine somatic cell nuclear transfer to Xenopus eggs with innovative multi-omics to study how a cell can remember its identity in order to erase its memory.

View Lab
Scialdone Lab

Physics and Data-Based Modeling of Cellular Identity Changes

We aim to understand the molecular bases of cell identity changes by combining single-cell and spatial omics data analysis with physical modeling.

Battich Lab

Quantitative Cell Biology

We are interested in the strategies that cells use to control gene expression levels and variability during differentiation.
