“Genome-Wide Profiling of Histone Modifications in Breast Cancer Stem Cells”

Alice is investigating the epigenetic regulation of cancer stem cells to better develop treatments for different cancers through the fields of organic chemistry and medicine. This project will combine sequencing techniques with chromatin immunoprecipitation quantitative polymerase chain reaction and 3D organoid culture assays as well as computational analysis to better visualize and understand the epigenetic status of cancer stem cells.
