About the Ryder Lab:

We are interested in understanding the mechanisms that govern post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression during development and complex disease. Our research is focused primarily in three areas:

Ryder Lab Group Photo

  1. Post-transcriptional regulatory mechanisms involved in axis polarization and cell fate specification during Caenorhabditis elegans embryogenesis.

  2. Characterization of post-transcriptional regulatory mechanisms that guide oligodendrocyte differentiation and myelin formation in the vertebrate central nervous system.

  3. Identification of small molecule inhibitors of RNA-binding protein function using high throughput screening approaches.

We employ a combination of biochemical and molecular genetic methods, bioinformatics, chemical biology, biophysics, and structural analyses in our studies, with a focus on quantitative measurements. Our laboratory is located on the 9th floor of the Lazare Research Building in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Pharmacology at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. We enjoy a collaborative research environment that includes colleagues with related interests in worm biology, RNA biochemistry, developmental biology, or biophysics.

Rotation Projects

Potential Rotation Projects

A variety of rotation projects are available to study RNP assembly and post-transcriptional regulation during development using quantitative biochemical and modern molecular methods.

Project 1: Characterization of the RNA-protein complexes that guide C. elegans early development. Several projects ranging in scope from biochemical characterization of RNA-binding protein complexes to genetic dissection of RNA binding protein function in development are currently available. Contact Sean for more details.

Project 2: Post-transcriptional regulation of oligodendrocyte differentiation. Projects are available to monitor changes in gene expression as a function of differentiation with a focus on changes in alternative splicing and mRNA stability. Contact Sean for more details.
