Yarui Diao
Assistant Professor of Cell Biology

I lead a functional genomics lab at Duke Cell Biology and we are particularly interested in developing and applying cutting-edge functional genomics tools to understand the transcriptional regulatory mechanism that control tissue regeneration, aging, and cancer development.

Current Research Interests

1. Developing new functional genomics tools to study gene regulation and chromatin dynamics.
2. Determine the transcriptional control mechanism that regulates the cellular phase and activity of muscle stem cell in regeneration.
3. Delineate the genetic and epigenetic mechanisms that drive rhabdomyosarcoma tumorigenesis.
