Xuebing Wu, PhD, joined Columbia University as an assistant professor in November, 2018. Dr. Wu received his BS and MS in Control Science and Engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing. He pursued his PhD in Computational and Systems Biology at MIT with Phillip Sharp and Christopher Burge. He worked as an Helen Hay Whitney Fellow in Dr. David Bartel’s lab at Whitehead Institute/MIT prior to joining Columbia. The Wu lab integrates CRISPR, genomics, and machine learning to both decode and target RNA in human health and disease. The Wu lab seeks to bridge the discovery of basic mechanisms of gene regulation with the development of novel therapeutics for human diseases, focusing on cancer and cardiometabolic diseases.
