  • Research:
    The Payton lab focuses on the mechanisms by which genes are dysregulated in hematologic cancers. We are specifically interested in the role of aberrant chromatin landscapes and long non-coding RNAs (lncRNA). We take an integrative approach to understanding the complex interplay of genomic and epigenomic mutations and their impact on gene regulation; employing translational, bioinformatic, and basic biological approaches to understand the progression of hematopoietic cells from healthy to malignant.
