Jason Moffat Geneticist
Jason Moffat’s research group works to develop and apply new technologies to interpret gene function and understand molecular mechanisms that relate to disease. More specifically, his group uses imaging technologies and lentiviral RNAi to understand how different growth signaling pathways contribute to cancer metabolism.
