The Bock Lab at the CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences combines large-scale analysis of the epigenome with molecular biology and computational modeling, in order to better understand and treat leukemia and other diseases of the blood system. The team members work closely with biologists and medical researchers at the Medical University of Vienna, aiming to advance personalized medicine through epigenome sequencing and bioinformatic innovation.

Research Topic
Epigenomics. The lab is part of the BLUEPRINT project aimed at establishing, analyzing and interpreting comprehensive epigenome maps of >100 cell types of the blood and immune system.
Bioinformatics. We develop bioinformatic methods and infrastructure for analyzing DNA methylation data in the context of epigenome-wide association studies.
Diagnostics. Using large-scale DNA methylation mapping, bioinformatic prioritization and functional characterization, we strive to develop clinically relevant biomarkers for informing cancer therapy.
