Lectures and seminars External MBB Seminar: Igor Ulitsky "Cis-acting long noncoding RNAs in mammalian development and neuroregeneration"
Talk with Dr. Igor Ulitsky from the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel: "Cis-acting long noncoding RNAs in mammalian development and neuroregeneration".
About Igor Ulitsky
Dr. Igor Ulitsky received his PhD in computational biology from Tel Aviv University in 2009, working with Prof. Ron Shamir on algorithms for combination of heterogenous biological data and discovery of functional models. He was then a postdoctoral fellow at Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research in Cambridge, Massachusetts, working in the lab of Prof. David Bartel on the evolution and roles in embryonic development of long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs).
Since 2013, he is a group leader at the Weizmann Institute’s Department of Biological Regulation. His lab is combining experimental and computational biology to study the evolution, genomics, functions and modes of action of long noncoding RNAs in various mammalian systems, including stem cells, mouse models, and cancer cells.
