Postdoctoral Research on Epigenetics of tRNA at Thomas Jefferson University

Nov 19, 2018

Postdoctoral positions are available in the lab of Dr. Ya-Ming Hou at Thomas Jefferson University, Sidney Kimmel Medical College.

We study epigenetic post-transcriptional modifications of tRNA and how they impact codon-specific translation in diseases. Codon-specific translation is a new mechanism that regulates gene expression at the codon level and it is activated or repressed by stress. Current projects are:

(1)   Codon-specific translation in response to stress.

(2)   Epigenetics of tRNA in neurodegenerate diseases.
