Welcome to the Wold Lab
The Wold lab studies how cell identity is regulated in mammalian development, regeneration and aging. Our approach is anchored in genome science, aiming to work out how differentiation pathways are encoded in DNA and animated in the transcriptome. We develop new technologies and are actively using some of them to help build the international reference transcriptome and regulatory element databases. In a series of collaborative partnerships, we are increasingly focusing on the genomics of human disease states that include Alzheimer’s dementia, cancer, and Mendelian musculoskeletal disorders.
