About

Taeyoung Hwang, Ph.D., is an Investigator at the Lieber Institute for Brain Development and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurology and the Solomon H. Snyder Department of Neuroscience at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

Dr. Hwang’s research is focused on the regulatory roles of RNA. The Hwang laboratory develops and applies computational methods and high-throughput assays of RNA biology to uncover RNA-mediated gene regulation in the nervous system. The ongoing research projects include the characterization of regulatory RNAs involved in epigenetic gene regulation, the development of high-throughput assays evaluating the impacts of genetic variations on RNA-protein interactions, and the identification of small RNAs associated with neurodevelopmental disorders.
