Dr. Maria Zannis-Hadjopoulos’ laboratory focuses on the molecular mechanisms regulating the initiation of mammalian DNA replication. Specifically, her research program analyses the differences in the control of initiation of DNA replication between normal cells and cells that are transformed/tumor. In that framework, she also analyses the differences between the proteins involved in that process in the two systems.
