RNA Regulation in the Immune System

Mark Ansel, Ph.D.
Director, Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program

Hosts: Qing-Sheng Mi, MD, PhD

MicroRNAs, transcription factors, and epigenetic regulation shape the gene expression programs that determine cell identity and function. Dr. Ansel studies how these molecular mechanisms work together to control lymphocyte development, differentiation, and function in immunity. He uses in vitro cell differentiation systems, mouse genetics, disease models, and high dimensional cellular and molecular analyses in human biospecimens to unravel the regulatory networks that underlie immunity and immune pathology, especially allergy and asthma.

Dr. Ansel has authored many articles in eminent journals such as Nature, Nature Immunology, Immunity, Cancer Cell, Journal of Experimental Medicine and Journal of Clinical Investigation.
