    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My current research focus is to understand the embryo intrinsic epigenetic (re-)programming that underlies early cell fate decisions and in particular the development of cellular potency. Recent research, including my own, suggests that DNA methylation reprogramming by Tet enzymes is essential for early embryogenesis and the establishment of toti- and pluripotency. A long-term objective of my studies is understanding the impact of our environment (metabolites, exogenous stress, etc.) on the epigenetic programming of cellular potency and translating the knowledge gained to improve the generation of pluripotent cells for regenerative medicine and the treatment of epigenetically-based common human pathologies. Understanding epigenetic reprogramming in vivo in the early embryo will open up a new era of epigenomic therapy in reproductive and regenerative medicine and will broaden the understanding of fundamental epigenetic mechanisms in developmental biology.
