Description of research activities: Dr. Bergelís research is directed towards identifying novel chromatin-associated targets for cancer therapy and cancer prevention. The lab studies the cellular response to stresses (as UV irradiation) and particularly focuses on the chromatin level. The rational is that understanding the mechanism, by which our cells repair DNA-damage caused by ultraviolet irradiation, can help in developing a more efficient generation of sunscreens.
Keywords: Chromatin binding proteins, ultraviolet irradiation response, DNA-repair, cancer prevention
