Research Focus - The Efficiency of mRNA Splicing Regulation in Cancer

  • Exploring the kinetics of mRNA splicing regulation.
  • Investigating the tradeoff between temporal specificity and splice site fidelity in mis-regulated gene expression programs.
  • Understanding the functional consequences of recurrent cancer-associated mutations in core splicing regulatory factors.
  • Developing novel genomic approaches for measuring the temporal coordination between disparate steps of mRNA processing.
