Rexach & Pasaniuc Labs
Krakow Lab Research interests include genetic and molecular basis of skeletal dysplasias.
Martinez Lab Research interests include functional consequences of somatic mutations and epigenetic variants and developing cell culture models of disease, specifically in endometriosis. When not in lab, I'm in lab.
Pajukanta Lab Research interests include identifying biological mechanisms for cardiometabolic disorders by integrating DNA variant and single-cell omics data of metabolic tissues with cardiometabolic traits.
Arboleda Lab Research interests include evaluating the functional mechanisms underlying the intersection between complex traits and rare diseases via systematically validating variants of interest in vitro.
Aina Martinez i Zurita
Nelson Lab Research interests include the development of diagnostic tools and therapies for genetic diseases, and their translation to the clinical setting.
Backus & Arboleda Labs Research interests include developing a pipeline that serves as a direct path between characterizing missense variants in a given exome and targeted therapeutic drug development.
Sankararaman Lab Research interests include bioinformatics, next-generation sequencing applications, and technology development. Outside of lab I enjoy rock climbing, cycling, and brewing beer.
Eisenberg Lab Research interests include the genetic and molecular basis of complex traits and diseases, as well normal human biological function and applying this understanding to causal models and therapeutic approaches.
Allard Lab Research interests include studying the genetics that contribute to proper chromosome segregation during meiosis. In particular, I am interested in how improper segregation and aneuploidies can affect embryonic development and lead to genetic disease like Down syndrome.
Boutros Lab Research interests include cancer genomics and exercise oncology.
Research interests include the epigenetic basis for gene regulation, single-cell -omics, and the role of the microbiome in human states of health and disease. Outside of the lab, I enjoy find me cooking, biking, reading, and writing.
De La Torre-Ubieta Lab Research interests include the role of epigenomics in neurodevelopment and Down syndrome.
Ye Leila Yang
Horvath Lab Research interests include studying the molecular and genetic mechanisms of human aging, and translational aging research.
