Scientific summary

Our current research interest is the function of HSP1 in vivo. Recently, we have performed the CRISP/Cas9 knockout of Hsp1 in zebrafish. The knockout studies have defined essential in vivo roles in erythropoiesis, circadian cycle and behavior. We continue to follow these processes in vitro in human cells.
