I was a postdoc in the lab of Jeffrey Ross in McArdle from 1979-1982. I currently hold the J. Lowell Orbison Endowed Chair as Professor in the Department of Biochemistry & Biophysics and in Oncology at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry. I am Founding Director of the University of Rochester Center for RNA Biology: From Genome to Therapeutics, and Founding Chair of the University of Rochester Graduate Women in Science. Research in my lab focuses on the molecular basis of human diseases, with particular interest in mechanisms of mRNA decay. I am a member of the National Academy of Sciences and fellow of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences, and was recently awarded the William C. Rose Award from the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and Canada's top award for excellence in biomedical research, the 2015 Gairdner International Award.
