实验室简介

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.

吴炜祥

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.

课题组主要研究方向包括:

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.

岗位工作内容

The postdoctoral fellow will take on projects with the following goals:

(1) Develop technologies to sequence notable RNA modification patterns (epitranscriptomes) at high resolution

(2) Generate disease-specific epitranscriptomes to facilitate the study of how epitranscriptomic defects contribute to human disorders

(3) Identify novel epitranscriptomic mechanisms (Writers, Erasers and Readers of RNA modifications) and characterize mechanistically how they regulate gene expression, cellular processes and diseases. Diseases currently under investigation include but are not limited to: colorectal cancer and viral-infectious diseases

Postdoctoral fellows will also work closely with the principal investigator to develop new project ideas relevant to epitranscriptomics and the general field of RNA biology.
