Ethan receives NIH F30 fellowship
Congratulations to Ethan Hollingsworth, who has been awarded an NIH F30 – Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award from NICHD. Well done!
Specific non-coding regulatory DNA elements called enhancers regulate gene transcription during animal development. The Kvon lab investigates transcriptional regulation by enhancers using cutting-edge genomics, genome editing, and transgenic tools. We are particularly interested in studying the role of enhancers in development and evolution and how enhancer malfunction leads to congenital disease.
