Eric So is currently the chair and professor in Leukemia and Stem Cell Biology Group of King's College London.


The primary goal of Eric So's research program is to characterize the mechanisms of transcriptional regulation that are corrupted in leukemia. By identification and molecular dissection of the transcriptional and epigenetic networks deregulated by oncogenic transcription factors, the research work should give important mechanistic insights into the molecular basis of the diseases, and in longer term, provide fruitful avenues for development of specific therapeutic interventions.
