Dr. Hemanta Adhikary, Ph.D.
Dr. Adhikary's research is primarily focused on the systematic development of peptide-based KMT and KDM inhibitors for their potential use in cancer treatment. Dr. Adhikary is also interested in the role of PRMT proteins in DNA damage and repair.
Viktoria Xing, B.Sc., B.Eng.
Vikoria's research explores the in vitro and in vivo functions of an uncharacterized methyl-binding domain (agenet; tudor-like) in the FMRP protein and its potential role in Parkinson's disease. She is a co-supervised student with Dr. Shawn Hayley.
Ryan Collins, B.Sc.
Ryan's research is based on the systematic identification and characterization of new MLL4/WRAD KMT substrates. Ryan is exploring the role that MLL4/WRAD facilitates in DNA damage repair through dynamic substrate methylation.
