Posted on

ebrc_logo3Haynes lab members Alyssa Henning, Ben Nyer, and Dr. Karmella Haynes will be presenting research at a 2017 Fall Retreat organized by the Engineering Biology Research Consortium (EBRC). The retreat will take place at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, GA September 22 – 23, 2017. EBRC members include some of the most prestigious labs in synthetic biology. Attendees will come from academic, industry, and government institutions from across the country.

Ph.D. student Alyssa Henning (Biological Design, SBHSE) will present a poster entitled “Chromometer: A modular synthetic system to detect epigenetic changes in live human cells.” This will be her first EBRC retreat.

Research technician David Nyer will present a poster on “Regulation of breast cancer epigenomes with a synthetic chromatin protein.”

Dr. Haynes will present a talk entitled “In Vitro Development of Synthetic Chromatin Effectors for Breast Cancer” which will highlight work related to two of the lab’s recent reports on the biochemical characterization of synthetic chromatin proteins and the use of these proteins to activate tumor suppressor genes in breast cancer cells.
