The UCSD Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine (CMM) is one of two basic science units in the School of Medicine where world class researchers study fundamental cellular processes and pathways using a variety of techniques from classical genetics and fluorescence microscopy to highthroughput genomics, systems biology, and crystallography. Our 36 faculty and over 200 postdoctoral scholars, graduate students, and research staff work on the cutting edge of biology, cutting across fields from basic biochemistry and genetics to genomics, systems biology and stem cell biology. The faculty also play a major role in medical and graduate student training, providing educational and programmatic offerings that span several disciplines and provide diversity to meet the interests of a broad spectrum of students and scholars. We constantly seek to recruit highly motivated, technologically advanced, and deeply interested individuals who are ready to become a part of our dynamic research and educational environment.
The Yeo lab (http://yeolab.github.io) in the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine is a 40+ member hybrid experimental and computational lab that uses state-of-the-art technologies to understand the molecular mechanisms by which gene expression is controlled at the RNA level to maintain proper functioning of cells, and how dysregulation of these processes leads to developmental and degenerative disorders. The focus of our research is broad and dynamic, and our trainees and staff have diverse backgrounds, encompassing computer science, materials science, engineering, RNA biology, neurobiology, biochemistry and therapeutic development.
