Dr. Shenchner studies how RNAs nucleate, modulate, and control cellular architecture, and how these processes are dysregulated in disease. They specialize in the development of cutting edge synthetic biology-, chemical biology-, and genomics tools that are “plug-and-play,” and easily adopted by most labs. This democratized toolkit helps them and others to elucidate the fundamental principles governing the spatial cell biology of RNA, and to discover new potential therapeutic targets in a range of human pathologies.
Dave did his undergraduate studies at Yale, and completed his PhD training in David Bartel’s lab at MIT. He was a JCCF postdoctoral fellow in John Rinn’s lab, at Harvard, before launching SheqLab at UW in 2017.
