Cornelis Murre

Professor, Section of Molecular Biology, UCSD

The research in the Murre laboratory is focused on the regulation and function of helix-loop-helix proteins in stem cells, lymphocyte development and homeostasis. Control of tissue-specific gene expression during B and T lymphocyte development, cell growth, cell death and aging are prominent in our research. Additionally, our recent studies as a collaboration with the Supercomputer Center have resolved using high-precision fluorescence microscopy, computational tools and geometry, the 3D-structure of the immunoglobulin heavy chain locus.
