Victor Corces’s research focus is gene expression and the role of chromatin structure and nuclear organization in the control of eukaryotic gene transcription. In particular, he and his lab members research the mechanisms by which chromatin architectural proteins affect gene expression by establishing the three-dimensional organization of the genome. Corces also developed an educational program called Research Internship and Science Education (RISE) to train and mentor Atlanta public high school students, involving graduate students and postdocs as mentors, with the ultimate goal of having them graduate from Emory University and go on to graduate science programs.
