Research:

Small RNA pathways in animal development


Education

Postdoctoral Fellow: University of Massachusetts Medical School
Ph.D.: Massachusetts Institute of Technology 
B.Sc. (Hon), B.A.:  University of Pittsburgh


Fields of Interest:

  • Cellular and Molecular Structure and Function
  • Genetic Models of Development and Disease

Research Interests:

Research in the Claycomb lab is aimed at uncovering the molecular mechanisms by which small RNA pathways related to RNA interference modulate chromatin throughout animal development. Our studies exploit integrated experimental approaches including molecular genetics, genomics, and cell biology in the model nematode, C. elegans.
