UConn Health/Jackson Labs Affiliated Faculty

  • Assistant Professor, The Jackson Laboratory

    Research Interests: gene expression regulation in cancer; alternative splicing; breast cancer; ovarian cancer; RNA biology

    My research goal is to elucidate how changes in gene expression regulation contribute to cancer. My lab focuses on characterizing the role of alternative-splicing misregulation in breast and ovarian cancer by using 3D cell culture and PDX models. Our unique expertise in both RNA biology and cancer research allows us to connect these distinct fields, and by combining innovative tools and interdisciplinary approaches, to gain novel insights into the molecular mechanism of gene expression regulation in normal and cancer cells. My research findings should lead to the development of novel biomarkers and promising drugs for cancer therapy.

  • In the Beaudoin lab, we are inspired by these two phenomena of dynamic cellular transitions during development and the role of RNA structure in governing the flow of cellular information. We aim to characterize RNA structure and functions to better understand vertebrate development. To this end, our lab uses the zebrafish and human cell lines as model systems, and we integrate an array of approaches that includes RNA molecular biology, computational biology, high throughput sequencing, genome-engineering, genetics, and developmental biology.
