Research vision
The research in Tiwari lab aims at achieving an integrated molecular and systems-level understanding of the communication between genetic and epigenetic information in determining cell identity and how this communication is altered in cancer and neurological disorders. To address these questions, his lab employs a multidisciplinary approach combining cutting-edge genomics and epigenetics together with computational biology tools in defined animal and cellular models and the observations are further validated in clinical samples.
