Dr. Hosna Jabbari
Assistant Professor of Computational Biology at the Department of Computer Science
University of Victoria, BC, Canada
Dr. Jabbari’s research focuses on finding the underlying mechanisms of human diseases with a transcriptomic lens. She has an extensive background in predicting complex structure of RNA and utilizing it for therapeutics. Her past projects include breast cancer luminal type identification using RNA-seq, identification of optimal oligonucleotide for exon skipping treatment of Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and differential gene expression analysis for stem cell to endothelial vs. neuronal cells. She is currently interested in RNA-binding-protein-RNA interaction mechanism and its implication on human diseases.
