Welcome to Our Laboratory
The Liu Lab is affiliated with the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine. We utilized a battery of biochemical, cellular, and high-throughput sequencing approaches to study the function of RNA modifying enzymes and sex chromosome-encoded protein homologs in human physiology and disease.
Yes, we do modern RNA enzymology and sex-specific RNA biology!
We focus on
Coregulation of enzyme-mediated modifications across RNA species
Sex chromosome-encoded protein homologs in sex bias of human cancers
Catalytic- and non-catalytic functions of ribosome RNA modifying enzymes in hematopoiesis and hematopoietic malignancy
Our lab members engage in innovative research using diverse techniques. We strive toward creating a collaborative and vibrant environment.
Come join us! There is room for everyone in RNA enzymology and sex-specific RNA biology!
We are recruiting at all levels. Please contact Dr. Liu (email@example.com) if interested.
