We seek to define molecular principles underpinning dynamic changes to chromatin structure during human development. We are interested in mechanistic detail: how chromatin regulatory complexes engage and modify the epigenome, and how misregulation of such processes leads to neurological disease. To this end we integrate insights from chromatin biochemistry with functional (epi)genomic methods in stem cell models of human brain development.
