Professional StatementI am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and member of the Therapeutic Innovation Center.
“I know that mutation of my RNA binding protein causes disease – but how do I know which of thousands of targets drive this phenotype?” The simplicity of this question belies the challenges involved in both identifying the direct and regulatory targets of the RNA binding protein (RBP), as well as narrowing the list of (often thousands or more) targets down to a set of phenotypically-relevant ones. My group uses a variety of genomics, molecular biology, and computational approaches to map and understand RNA processing regulatory networks, with the goals of uncovering new mechanisms in RNA processing and characterizing their roles in human physiology. We particularly focus on two biological systems: how RNA viruses hijack host RNA processing machineries to ensure proper replication and assembly, and how altered regulation of mRNA translation drives breast cancer.
