Prof. VALERIO ORLANDO Specialises in chromatin mediated fundamental mechanisms that control cell identity and plasticity. He is working as Professor Department of Bioscience, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Saudi Arabia.
"Prof. Orlando's lab is interested in investigating the chromatin mediated fundamental mechanisms that control cell identity and plasticity. These include signaling to chromatin regulation and nuclear organization by Polycomb proteins, the role of ncRNA-protein interactions in transcriptional regulation, Epigenomics and how this relates for development, transdifferentiation and adaptation (e.g. Metabolism), in particular in stress conditions.
