Research:

Drosophila and yeast to study the mechanisms that underlie post-transcriptional regulation

Education:

Postdoctoral Fellow: Stanford University
Ph.D.:  McMaster University
B.Sc.:  McMaster University
 

Fields of Interest:

  • Functional Genomics and Proteomics
  • Genetic Models of Development and Disease
     

Research Interests:

Post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression is achieved through the control of mRNA translation, mRNA stability and subcellular mRNA localization. Post-transcriptional regulation is mediated by RNA-binding proteins and regulatory RNAs that recognize specific sequences within target transcripts. We use both Drosophila and yeast to study the mechanisms that underlie post-transcriptional regulation.
