David Morris, Ph.D.

Dr. Morris studies the role of RNA-protein complexes in the regulation of gene expression, and ways that these complexes can be used to profile genome-wide expression. One research focus is the role of the RNA-binding protein FMRP and its multiple isoforms (variations), work that is relevant to understanding the biological basis of Fragile X syndrome and ultimately to the design of therapies.  Another focus is the development of techniques to tag ribosomes in specific cells and the use of this approach to analyze gene expression in complex tissues, such as the brain.
