Danica Fujimori's Biography

Danica Fujimori, Principal Investigator, University of California, San Francisco

Danica Galonic Fujimori is Associate Professor of Cellular and Molecular Pharmacology and Pharmaceutical Chemistry at University of California, San Francisco. Research in her lab focuses on mechanisms, regulation and biological functions of post-translational and post-transcriptional methylation. The Fujimori lab investigates mechanisms by which the jumonji family of histone demethylases, a class of epigenetic “eraser” proteins, is regulated on chromatin through a cross-talk of catalytic and chromatin reader domains in these enzymes. Additionally, the Fujimori lab has developed chemical probes that target jumonji demethylases. Dr. Fujimori is a recipient of Searle Scholar Award, V Foundation Scholar Awards, Kimmel Scholar Award, and National Science Foundation CAREER award, among others.

Selective small molecule regulators of epigenetic protein families have a potential to profoundly impact our understanding of chromatin-mediated processes in physiology and disease pathogenesis. This talk describes our efforts aimed at development of inhibitors of histone demethylases.
