Genome Pioneer Lecture: Dr. Terry Magnuson

How Albino Coat Color in Mice Led to Chromatin Modifiers

Dr. Terry Magnuson is the Sarah Graham Kenan Professor, Vice Dean for Research in the School of Medicine, Cancer Genetics Program Director of the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, Founding Chair of the Department of Genetics, and Founding Director of the Carolina Center for Genome Sciences at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Work in the Magnuson lab focuses on the role of mammalian genes in unique epigenetic phenomena such as genomic imprinting and X-chromosome inactivation. The lab also studies the tumor suppressor role of the BAF/PBAF chromatin remodeling complexes and has developed a novel genome-wide mutagenesis strategy. Dr. Magnuson is a member of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and serves on the National Institutes of Health Council of Councils and on the National Research Council Panel on establishing guidelines for use of human embryonic stem cells.
