Dr. Grabowski is Professor of Biology at the University of Pittsburgh, with a secondary appointment at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. She received her B.A. degree in chemistry from the University of Maryland Baltimore County and her Ph.D. degree in chemistry from the University of Colorado at Boulder. She carried out postdoctoral work in RNA biochemistry with Phillip Sharp at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and was a member of the faculty at Brown University prior to joining the University of Pittsburgh.
RESEARCH ABSTRACT SUMMARY:
Paula Grabowski uses biochemical and genetic approaches to study alternative RNA splicing in the mammalian nervous system. She applies information from model systems to understand how splicing responds to different cell types and stages of development, and the underlying rationale for splicing errors in inherited disease.
