Christine Mayr, MD, PhD

My laboratory studies how mRNA elements that do not encode amino acids contribute to the regulation of biological complexity. We examine how 3′ untranslated regions (3′UTRs) regulate protein functions without affecting protein abundance. We also investigate the role of mRNAs as cytoplasmic organizers that enable subcellular compartmentalization required for the implementation of protein functions.

Disclosures

Doctors and faculty members often work with pharmaceutical, device, biotechnology, and life sciences companies, and other organizations outside of MSK, to find safe and effective cancer treatments, to improve patient care, and to educate the health care community.

MSK requires doctors and faculty members to report (“disclose”) the relationships and financial interests they have with external entities. As a commitment to transparency with our community, we make that information available to the public.

Christine Mayr discloses the following relationships and financial interests:
