The Corn Lab

The Corn Lab develops and uses next-generation genome editing and regulation technologies. We work on both fundamental biological discovery and potential therapies for human genetic diseases. Our focus is the mechanisms by which cells repair their DNA, maintain and differentiate hematopoietic stem cells, and dispose of entire organelles. Through technology development, mechanistic cellular biochemistry, and translational projects, we are working to unravel complex cellular phenotypes to further biological understanding and improve human health.

Our work is supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation, the European Research Council, the NCCR RNA & Disease, the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the NOMIS Foundation, and the Lotte und Adolf Holtz Foundation.
