Shenzhen Bay Laboratory (SZBL) is a newly established institute located in the heart of the China Greater Bay Area. Launched by Peking University and Shenzhen city, SZBLfocuses on biomedical research with an initial 5-year budget of 2 billion USD. SZBL aspires to be a world-class research institute and intellectual destination dedicated to understanding the fundamental biology underlying health and diseases while spurring solutions to the grand challenges confronting our world’s population and human well-being. The mission of the SZBL is to create a new research model to boost the health sciences and to nurture the innovation-oriented biotechnology industry.
Sho graduated from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory with a Ph.D. in Biological Science in 2015. In 2017, he established his own independent laboratory, studying epitranscriptomics at the Genome Institute of Singapore. In 2020, he moved his laboratory to Shenzhen Bay Laboratory where he took on the role of tenure-track assistant professor. His work has been published in journals such as Nature Communications, Nucleic Acids Research, Genes & Development, PLoS Computational Biology and Cell.
The Sho Goh lab studies how RNA modifications regulate gene expression and cellular processes by developing new technologies to sequence RNA modifications and functionally characterizing novel epitranscriptomic factors that interact with and metabolize RNA modifications. Defects in epitranscriptomic regulation cause a variety of diseases and determining the mechanistic basis that underlie these defects will be crucial for developing effective epitranscriptomic-based therapeutic strategies.
