Welcome to the Taubert lab!
The Taubert lab at UBC is a genetics and genomics lab that uses several model organisms, but primarily the nematode worm C. elegans, the mouse, and cancer cell lines to study fundamental concepts of biology and their relevance to human health and disease. We are also developing computational tools and web servers to facilitate transcriptome analysis and interpretation and for cancer patient data analysis.
We are especially interested in how transcriptional regulators such as Mediator and Nuclear Receptors control metabolism, stress adaptation, development, and aging. Our work is relevant to several areas of medicine, including diabetes, cancer research, and neurodegenerative disorders. You can learn more about our research on the "Research" and "Publications" page.
We are associated with the Department of Medical Genetics and the Cell and Developmental Biology Graduate Program. The lab is located at the Centre for Molecular Medicine and Therapeutics (CMMT) at the BC Children’s Hospital Research Institute (BCCHR).
