Prof. Daniel G Tenen
Cancer Science Institute of Singapore, NUS
Professor Tenen is a leader in gene regulation in both normal
differentiation and cancer, with a focus on leukemia, lung cancer, and liver
cancer. Prof Tenen’s lab's most recent studies demonstrated that RNA can regulate
DNA methylation, and that RNA can be utilised to induce demethylation in a
gene-specific manner. Prof Tenen’s group is also working on methods of
activating tumor suppressors silenced in cancer.
