About the Lab

We are a multidisciplinary laboratory focused on discovering fundamental mechanisms of RNA biology that regulate the immune response to viral infections and cancer, and the host response to immunotherapy. We are located in the School of Medicine at the University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, California. The lab is also associated with the Division of Genetics, Department of Pediatrics, Institute for Genomic Medicine, Moores Cancer Center, Center for Drug Discovery Innovation, and the Biomedical Sciences Program of UC San Diego.  See our Opportunities page for more information.​
