UNC Pharmacology Presents David Shechner, PhD, Hosted by Mauro Calabrese and Dan Dominguez

April 9 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Dr. David Shechner did his undergraduate studies at Yale, and completed his PhD training in David Bartel’s lab at MIT. He was a JCCF postdoctoral fellow in John Rinn’s lab at Harvard, before launching the SheqLab at UW in 2017, and is currently the Assistant Professor for the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Washington in Seattle.

Dr. Shechner and his lab study how RNAs nucleate, modulate, and control cellular architecture, and how these processes are dysregulated in disease. They specialize in the development of cutting edge synthetic biology-, chemical biology-, and genomics tools that are “plug-and-play”, and easily adopted by most labs. This democratized toolkit helps them and others to elucidate the fundamental principles governing the spatial cell biology of RNA, and to discover new potential therapeutic targets in a range of human pathologies.

Please join us in 1131 Bioinformatics on Tuesday, April 9th at 4 PM when Dr. Shechner presents his talk on “New Insights into Mammalian Genome Organization by targeted Proximity-omics of Single-Locus Subnuclear Microcompartments.”
