Since starting his own lab in 2006, Blelloch continues to follow his interest in the global regulators of cellular differentiation and cancer. He is studying the epigenetic regulation of stem cell differentiation and cancer development. He is also studying how the different modes of epigenetic regulation (DNA methylation, histone modification, and small RNAs) regulate one another. Blelloch's ultimate goal is to develop a deeper understanding of the molecular underpinnings of normal and abnormal cell differentiation which will contribute to the advancement of regenerative medicine and cancer care. Other interests include fertility preservation for cancer patients.
