Welcome to CollasLab

Nuclear and chromatin architecture in adipose stem cells and cancer cells

bureauxThe CollasLab investigates principles of 3D genome architecture which pattern lineage-specific stem cell differentiation in health and disease.


Our lab consists of 16 scientists, postdocs, PhD students and technicians working to understand mechanisms regulating chromatin plasticity in adipose tissue, pediatric glioblastomas, and breast cancer.
