R. David Hawkins is an Associate Professor of Medical Genetics and Genome Sciences, and Member of the Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine at the University of Washington School of Medicine. Our research aims to understand the role the epigenome plays in determining cell fates. In this context, we employ computational and genome-wide methods to study histone modifications, DNA methylation, 3D genome architecture and expressed coding and non-coding RNAs, which are highly informative about gene regulation. We are also investigating how disease-associated variants at cis-regulatory elements alter activity and contribute to disease.
We are looking for talented postdocs!
