About the Instructor:
Allissa Dillman, Ph.D.
Dr. Allissa Dillman received her Ph.D. in neuroscience from the graduate partnership program between NIH and the Karolinska Institutet. She studied gene expression regulation, splicing and RNA editing in development and disease. Her specific interest in RNA modifications include base pair mapping in the transcriptome and their potential biological function. In 2015, she joined the National Cancer Institute for her postdoctoral work where she studies epigenetic regulation of splicing and the identification and biological function of novel RNA modifications. Throughout her scientific career she has contributed to more than 30 scientific publications and participates in mentorship and teaching of both bioinformatics and RNA biology. Dr. Dillman has participated as a team lead for RNA related projects in multiple hackathons at the NIH.
