Matthew Wright received his B.S. from the University of California, Davis and his M.S. from the University of Oregon Bioinformatics and Genomics Master’s Program. For his master’s research, he re-analyzed several ribosome profiling datasets which helped lead to the discovery of a new method of translational regulation in vertebrates. In 2019, Matthew joined the lab of Dr. Damini Jawaheer at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, where he uses RNA-Seq to investigate gene expression changes in rheumatoid arthritis during pregnancy-related disease improvement and postpartum disease flare. His research seeks to characterize the biological pathways, cell types, and lncRNAs that are involved in these processes, and to investigate if there is anything at the pre-pregnancy state that can be used to predict them. Outside of work, he enjoys making music, cooking, and riding his bicycle around town.
Is gene expression among women with rheumatoid arthritis dysregulated during a postpartum flare?
