Mutations that lead to misregulated translation have significant consequences for human disease. In this project, Angela will develop a mathematical model that relates mutations to regulation of translation. Eventually, she hopes to validate this mathematical model using experimental methods. This project will have a major positive impact by enhancing our understanding of the genetic basis of translation regulation in disease.
