Jamie Yang


MD/PhD Student

Jamie Yang is part of the systems biology track of the Integrated Program in Cellular, Molecular, and Biomedical Studies at Columbia University Medical Center. After coming to Columbia as an MD/PhD candidate, he completed two years of clinical coursework before joining the lab of Saeed Tavazoie. His research currently focuses on laboratory-evolved anticipatory regulation in E. coli. He earned a BA and MS at the University of Pennsylvania, where he worked in the lab of Brian Gregory. His master's thesis interrogated the effects of the nuclear cap-binding complex on RNA secondary structure transcriptome-wide in Arabidopsis thaliana.
