Yarui Diao
Assistant Professor of Cell Biology

I lead a functional genomics lab at Duke Cell Biology. We are particularly interested in developing and applying cutting-edge functional genomics tools to understand the transcriptional regulatory mechanisms controlling tissue regeneration in healthy and disease conditions.

Current Research Interests

1. Develop new genomics technology to study gene regulation and chromatin dynamics.
2. Determine the gene regulation mechanism of skeletal muscle regeneration.
3. Delineate the genetic and epigenetic mechanisms controlling rhabdomyosarcoma tumorigenesis.
