The Kron laboratory is a highly collaborative group of cell biologists, geneticists, biochemists and chemists. Our major basic research efforts are directed at 1) dissecting cyclin dependent kinase structure and function in yeast, 2) defining roles for chromatin modifications in DNA damage response, and 3) developing novel mass spectrometry methods for phosphoproteomics and high throughput screening. We also pursue translational projects directed at 1) developing Bcr-Abl assays for diagnostics and antagonists for therapeutics and 2) discovering inhibitors of cellular response to DNA double strand breaks as an approach to radiosensitization.
