Systems Biology/QB3 Fellow

Stanley was a graduate student in Adam’s Arkin’s lab at UC Berkeley, where he studied the design principles of large-scale genetic circuitry programming with noncoding RNAs. He developed methods to synthetically generate large libraries of RNA regulatory elements based on in vitro, in vivo and in silico designs that can detect cellular or environmental signals and form complex regulatory networks for biocomputation and cellular information processing. As a Systems Biology Fellow, Stanley is developing novel synthetic RNA-targeted technologies as a potentially superior alternative to RNA interference to interrogate the kinetic coordination of collections of multiple genes during development and pathogenicity. He is also applying synthetic biology principles to develop customizable remediable strategies by building therapeutically useful yet non-invasive genetic circuits to reliably detect and reverse disease states.
