Dr. Fuxman Bass is an Assistant Professor in the Biology Department at Boston University. His overarching scientific goals are to elucidate the underlying principles governing cytokine regulation. In particular, his lab focuses on delineating the gene regulatory networks involved in cytokine transcription and identifying novel transcription factors involved in this process by integrating multiple omics approaches. In addition, his lab studies the role of virally-encoded transcription factors in modulating gene expression as a mechanism of viral immune evasion. His work has been funded by the Pew Charitable Trusts and by the National Institutes of Health through the K99/R00, R35, and U01 mechanisms.
