    Sensory system neurons have unique cellular identities, which reflect their important functional role in the detection and processing of information crucial for survival. Wayne is interested in how the identities of cells in sensory systems are established and maintained through changes in their epigenome and transcriptome. He is approaching these problems by investigating multi-modal epigenomic and transcriptomic datasets

    Chris is interested in examining genome-wide DNA methylation patterns in the brain to understand how methylation markers differ across cell types and the functional implications of this; how changes in methylation may support cognition; and whether methylation differences may be implicated in disorders such as schizophrenia and autism.
