Welcome to the Weinberg Lab @ UCSF!

The Weinberg Lab was established at UCSF in September 2013 through the Sandler Fellows Program. Our lab is taking a multidisciplinary approach to understand the molecular basis of translational control and the interplay between translation and mRNA decay. More generally, we are interested in the diverse mechanisms of gene regulation that operate at the post-transcriptional level. Please see the "People" section of the website to find out more about what we're up to!

We are always looking for talented graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to join the lab. For more information about possible projects or rotations, please contact David (David.Weinberg [at] ucsf.edu).
