Turner Laboratory

T Cell Transcriptional
and Epigenetic Regulation

Welcome to the Turner Lab

We aim to identify novel transcriptional and epigenetic pathways, as well as novel regulatory elements within the genome, that regulate virus-specific killer T cell differentiation, function and the establishment of immunological memory.

We're part of the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, a member of the Immunity Program
and the Department of Microbiology.

Our research

We use a multidisciplinary approach that includes the application of multiple next generation sequencing applications (RNA-seq, ChiP-seq, ATAC-seq, and HiC), small molecule inhibitor treatment of epigenetic and transcriptional regulators, novel transgenic and gene deficient mouse models, viral models of immunity and advanced bioinformatics.
