Vishnu Dileep (Ph.D. 2017)
CMB student in the Gilbert lab
He studied the relationship between DNA replication-timing regulation and 3D chromatin architecture. Vishnu’s doctoral research showed that the re-establishment of interphase-specific chromatin folding from the condensed mitotic chromosomes coincides with the establishment of the replication-timing program. Vishnu was supported by an American Heart Association fellowship and completed his work by studying genome-wide replication timing regulation at the single cell level.
