Abstract/Bio: Kai Ge, Ph.D. is a Senior Investigator and Acting Branch Chief at the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), National Institutes of Health (NIH) located in Bethesda, Maryland. Kai received a BS degree in Biochemistry from Fudan University in Shanghai in 1992 and Ph.D. degree from Shanghai Institute of Biochemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1997. After postdoctoral training with Robert Roeder at The Rockefeller University, he set up his own lab at NIH in 2003 and was promoted to Senior Investigator with tenure in 2011. His lab is interested in epigenomic regulation of cell fate transition, with a focus on enhancer regulation by histone H3K4 methyltransferases and chromatin remodelers. His lab also investigates epigenomic regulation of adipose tissue development and expansion.

Host: Xiaobing Shi, Ph.D. – Dept. of Epigenetics
