Research synopsis: 

Foxp3 is a transcription factor specifically expressed in T regulatory (Treg) cells and plays a key role in their differentiation and function. My project focuses on studying epigenetic modifications in the Foxp3 locus. Specifically, I am investigating the role of DNA methylation in the CNS2 element, a conserved intronic region enriched for CpG dinucleotides. The presence or absence of methylation within this element contributes to the regulation of Foxp3 expression and the maintenance of Treg identity between cellular divisions.
