Xiang received her PhD from the Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2015. She is studying repressors and activators of fetal γ-globin transcription and their functions in modifying and remodeling chromatin structure.
Guoyou received his PhD in 2015 from Peking Uniun Medical Collega (PUMC) where he trained under Professor De-Pei Liu. Guoyou is working on regulation of key LDB1-regulated genes in liver and on regulation of erythroid genes by non-coding RNAs.
Juhyun received his PhD in 2015 from Molecular Biology, Dankook University in Korea. He is studying the mechanism of BCL11a that regulates fetal globin expression.
Bingning received her PhD in 2016 from University of Rennes 1 in France. She is studying enhancer RNAs in erythropoiesis to understand how they contribute to long range enhancer-promoter looping.
Post-doctoral IRTA Fellow
Khoa received his Ph.D. in 2019 from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. He studied epigenetic regulators under the mentorship of Dr. Erin Green. He is studying the organization of the Myb gene enhancer hub and screening for regulators of terminal differentiation of erythroid progenitor cells.
HeungSun received his PhD in Cell Biology and Biochemistry from Seoul National University. For 15 years, he studied axon regeneration underlying CNS disease in an animal model. His research focuses on the function of Ldb1 complex partners in chromatin looping as well as functional impact on gene expression during erythroid specific differentiation of ES cells.
