Dany_BioArango Chicago, Illinois


We are recruiting a postdoctoral researcher interested in RNA biology, post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression, and cancer pharmacology.

Our group is investigating the molecular mechanisms by which post-transcriptional modifications of RNA regulate mRNA processing, stability, and translation and how these mechanisms affect cell fate decisions in oncogenic processes. We integrate RNA biology, transcriptomics, cell biology, and animal models to uncover novel mechanisms of gene expression regulation as well as generate new tools and methods that can be harnessed for therapeutic means. As part of the Department of Pharmacology and the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center at Northwestern University –Feinberg School of Medicine, we are surrounded by a highly collaborative and supportive environment with a wide range of translational and basic science researchers.
