Jason Moffat is an Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto’s Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research. He received his Ph.D. in Molecular and Medical Genetics from the University of Toronto in 2002, under the supervision of Dr. Brenda Andrews. He then spent several years doing postdoctoral work at the University of Toronto and at the Whitehead and Broad Institutes in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In 2006, he received an Outstanding Young Investigator Award from GeneExpressions Systems.
Dr. Moffat’s research group works to develop and apply new technologies to interpret gene function and understand molecular mechanisms that relate to disease. More specifically, his group uses imaging technologies and lentiviral RNAi to understand how different growth signaling pathways contribute to cancer metabolism.
