Memory and Aging Center Grand Rounds

“Unbiased discovery of gene expression regulatory pathways in health and disease”

Hani Goodarzi, PhD
Assistant Professor, Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Department of Urology, Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, Bakar Computational Health Sciences Institute, UCSF, CA



Attendees will learn about how:

  • Gene expression is regulated by both rate of RNA transcription and decay;
  • 4sU CaptureSeq enables transcriptome-wide measurement of RNA stability;
  • REMBRANDTS is a novel computational framework for measuring changes in RNA stability in clinical samples;
  • Integrated computational and experimental tools can be used to identify pathological regulators of RNA decay.


  • Planners: Charles Windon, MD; Bruce L. Miller, MD; Howard J. Rosen, MD; and Eleanor O’Brien have stated they have no relationships to disclose.
  • Speaker: Dr. Goodarzi has no relationships to disclose.

Accreditation: The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
