Regulatory interactions of Ets transcription factors.


The goal of this project is to determine the mechanisms of cross-talk between the ETS- family transcription factors EHF and ELF5, which are encoded by neighboring genes located at the CF modifier region on 11p13. These factors are candidates for targets of the SNPs within the non-coding regions of the modifier locus. (Swahn, H., et al. (2019). Coordinate regulation of ELF5 and EHF at the chr11p13 CF modifier region. J Cell Mol Med. 2019 23 (11):7726-7740)


Successful applicants for this CFF funded program will have a strong record of accomplishment as shown by publications as a graduate student and/or postdoc, be highly motivated and have a passion for functional genomics research.


Expertise in one or more of the following areas is required: transcription factor biology/biochemistry; cell biology; post-translational modifications of proteins; genomics technologies including ChIP-seq and RNA-seq and the use of relevant bioinformatic pipelines


Familiarity with general techniques of molecular biology and mammalian cell biology is essential. We are part of a vibrant and interactive research community at Case Western Reserve University and occupy excellent, modern laboratory space.
