Prof. Gene Yeo is a leader in the development of computational and experimental approaches to understand mechanistic details of how RBPs control post-transcriptional regulatory networks in development and disease (neurodegeneration). His ongoing research program focuses on how specific RBPs and their regulated RNA targets are necessary for the survival and function of pluripotent stem cells and the central nervous system.
His lab is reputed to generate genome-wide data of the highest quality coupled with rigorous analyses. Using human patient-derived stem cell models, mice and patient post-mortem samples, they delve deep into mechanistic validations of our predictions, forging actionable links between basic biology and medicine. They are committed to developing RNA-sensitive nanotechnologies that utilize differences in RNA content in cells to alter cellular behavior, linking our efforts to deeply understand RNA biology with engineering applications derived from that knowledge.
