Mentor: Howard Chang, Dermatology

Brian Do's research in the lab of Dr. Chang focuses on discovering conditions that significantly alter gene expression programs in cells. Specifically, he is identifying mechanisms that contribute to the transcription and stability of noncoding RNAs as a gene class. Noncoding genes are important because their misregulation broadly impacts cellular function, often leading to disease states. Brian is integrating both computational and wet-lab approaches in his analyses.
