Research Summary / Selected Publications

The Kron laboratory is a highly collaborative group of cell biologists, geneticists, biochemists, computer scientists and chemists. Our major basic research efforts are directed at 1) defining roles for chromatin dynamics in DNA damage response, and 2) developing novel mass spectrometry methods for phosphoproteomics and epiproteomics. We also pursue translational projects directed at 1) developing Bcr-Abl assays for diagnostics and antagonists for therapeutics and 2) discovering inhibitors of cellular response to DNA double strand breaks as an approach to radiosensitization. Post-doc inquiries are welcome! Please contact Dr. Kron at
