Dr. Dominguez. who is an alumni of the Pharmacology Graduate program has joined the department as our newest Assistant Professor faculty member.

Dr. Daniel Dominguez

We are pleased to announce a new faculty member, Dr. Daniel Dominguez, who will start this fall. Daniel was a UNC Pharmacology graduate student working with Zefeng Wang before moving to Chris Burge’s lab at MIT. The Burge lab is a leader in the analysis of large-scale transcriptome datasets related to cancer. As a postdoc, Daniel developed a novel high throughput method to define the structure and sequence specificity of nearly 80 RNA binding proteins, and then determined how RNA-protein interactions affect sensitivity to chemotherapeutics. WELCOME!
