Since its inception in 1994, the Sistonen Lab aims at revealing the fundamental mechanisms that regulate gene expression and chromatin structure in response to intracellular and environmental signals. We have demonstrated that heat shock transcription factors (HSFs) act as integrators in cell stress, reproduction, and cancer.
