Dr Ayse Derya Cavga is a postdoctoral researcher in the lab of Prof. Jussi Taipale in the Department of Biochemistry.

I investigate how transcription factors behave in major forms of cancers using high-throughput SELEX and CUT&RUN methods. My ultimate goal is to propose novel therapies targeting DNA-TF interactions for some of the most devastating forms of cancer such as those of the liver, colorectum, lungs, and ovaries.
