Studying How Transcription Factors Regulate Gene Expression

The Graves lab focuses on mechanistic questions in the area of transcriptional regulation. We use biochemical, biophysical, and molecular biology approaches to investigate how sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factors regulate gene expression.

Current projects explore signaling pathways, DNA binding properties, and protein-protein interactions within the ETS family of regulatory transcription factors with a particular interest in family members associated with human cancers.
