About
About The Hockemeyer lab in the Molecular Cell Biology Department at UC Berkeley seeks a Jr. Specialist. The goal of the Hockemeyer lab is to shed light on the key functions of telomeres and telomerase in tissue homeostasis, tumorigenesis and aging in human stem cell. To investigate these processes we developed the use of site-specific to genetically engineer human stem cells. Using these tools we seek to understand how the enzyme telomerase is transcriptionally regulated and how telomere shortening impacts
tumor formation.
