Personal profile


PROFESSOR | Cell, Developmental and Regenerative Biology


Our long-term interest is to elucidate the molecular mechanisms that control epidermal stem cells during development and into adulthood with a specific interest in the role of chromatin regulators in these processes. Dr. Ezhkova carried out PhD studies on epigenetics and chromatin at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (NY, USA). For her postdoctoral studies, she moved to Dr. Elaine Fuchs’s lab at the Rockefeller University (NY, USA), where she learned the skin stem cell system. This past research training sets the foundation for the current research endeavors in Dr. Ezhkova's lab at the Black Family Stem Cell Institute at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
