Xuebing Wu, PhD, Wins Pershing Square Sohn Prize
Dr. Wu, assistant professor of systems biology and of medicine, has been awarded the 2021 Pershing Square Sohn Prize for Young Investigators in Cancer Research. Dr. Wu seeks to bridge the discovery of basic mechanisms of gene regulation with the development of novel therapeutics for human diseases, focusing on cancer and cardiometabolic diseases.
Dr. Xuebing Wu Named Pew-Stewart Scholar
Congratulations to Xuebing Wu, PhD, assistant professor of systems biology, who has been selected a Pew-Stewart Scholar for his work in cancer research. As a Pew scholar, Dr. Wu will investigate the dysregulation of messenger RNA structure in the development of breast cancer.
Decoding and Targeting RNA with CRISPR
Xuebing Wu, PhD, joined the Department of Systems Biology in the fall of 2018, with a joint appointment in the Department of Medicine’s Cardiology Division. He also is a member of the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia and the Data Science Institute, and his lab straddles basic science and computational biology. In this faculty Q+A, we learn how the Wu lab is making an impact in novel therapeutics. At the center of Dr. Wu's research interests is understanding the fundamental principles of gene regulation in human cells through integrative genomics approaches.
