About the Speaker(s)
The Roberts laboratory studies the SWI/SNF (BAF) chromatin remodeling/tumor suppressor complex. We first began studying the complex over a decade ago when it was shown that the SNF5/SMARCB1/INI1/BAF47 subunit was specifically mutated in nearly all cases of malignant rhabdoid tumor, a highly aggressive and lethal cancer of early childhood.
