Mitch Guttman, from the California Institute of Technology, US, aims to understand how large ncRNAs control gene expression programs and cell state decisions in the context of mouse embryonic stem cells. To achieve this goal he aims to define lincRNA-Protein interactions and sites of interactions, define regulatory targets of lincRNAs and their mechanisms of interaction and determine how lincRNAs, through these interactions, regulate gene expression.

He has been invited by Thomas Graf (CRG).
