The Faustino lab investigates systems biology of the pluripotent nucleus, and how specific nuclear proteins orchestrate the intricate signaling framework underlying stem cell identity and function. Our approach integrates next generation sequencing and bioinformatic analysis with cell culture, molecular biology, and biochemistry techniques to resolve the molecular interactome that gives rise to the unique cellular properties associated with pluripotency. Ultimately, elucidating systems biology functions of the nucleus in a stem cell context is critical to our understanding of pluripotent biology for precise reparative and therapeutic strategies.
