Gene Yeo is a professor of cellular and molecular medicine at the University of California, San Diego. He received his Ph.D. in computational neuroscience at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and was a Crick-Jacobs Fellow at the Salk Institute.
Yeo’s work is aimed at understanding RNA processing, focusing on the role of RNA-binding proteins in cell biology including neurological disease. His lab also develops therapeutic strategies based on RNA-binding protein biology. His multidisciplinary team uses high-throughput genomics and systems biology approaches, engineering, statistical and machine learning methods, as well as biochemical, molecular and cell biology methods.
