The Taubert lab at UBC is a genetics and genomics lab that uses several model organisms, but primarily the nematode worm C. elegans and the mouse, to study fundamental concepts of biology and their relevance to human health and disease.
We are especially interested in how transcriptional regulators such as Mediator and Nuclear Receptors control metabolism, stress adaptation, development, and aging. Our work is relevant to several areas of medicine, including diabetes, cancer research, and neurodegenerative disorders. You can learn more about our research on the “Research” and “Publications” page.
We are associated with the Department of Medical Genetics and the Cell and Developmental Biology Graduate Program. The lab is located at the Centre for Molecular Medicine and Therapeutics (CMMT) at the BC Children’s Hospital Research Institute (BCCHR).
The lab is looking for new graduate student, postdoctoral fellows, and technical staff. We encourage applications from enthusiastic and qualified individuals who are interested in joining us!
