Assistant Professor, Department of Medicine and Department of Systems Biology, Columbia University
Xuebing Wu, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine and the Department of Systems Biology at Columbia University Irving Medical Center. Dr. Wu received a B.S. and M.S. in Control Science and Engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing, and a Ph.D. in Computational and Systems Biology from MIT. Following his Ph.D. training with Professors Phillip Sharp and Christopher Burge and postdoctoral training with Professor David Bartel, Dr. Wu started his own lab at Columbia in November 2018. The Wu laboratory studies fundamental principles of how genetic information is coded, decoded, and evolves, focusing on mammalian systems with an RNA-centric perspective. The Wu lab is also developing high-throughput genomic assays and CRISPR technologies to bridge the discovery of gene regulation with therapeutic development for human diseases. Dr. Wu has received a number of distinctions, including the RNA Society/Scaringe Young Scientist Award, Pew-Stewart Scholars Award, and NIH Director’s New Innovator Award.
