The NIH has selected Penn Medicine as one of 25 award recipients across 30 sites in the United States to serve as Impact of Genomic Variation on Function (IGVF) investigators, with Hao Wu serving as Principal Investigator. Congratulations Hao!
Alex Wei, a PhD student (NGG program) from the Wu lab recently received an F31 grant from NHGRI for research on “Dissecting Gene Regulatory Roles of TET Enzymes and 5-hydroxymethylcytosine in Mammalian Active DNA Demethylation.” Congratulations!
Hao Wu of the Perelman School of Medicine has received the New Innovator Award from the National Institutes of Health. With this grant, the Wu lab aims to study the molecular mechanisms governing the environment-epigenome interactions in these cells by developing “oxygen-sensing” epigenome analysis and editing tools.
