Lecture by Jeff Gelles RI '17

A central focus of Jeff Gelles’s research is the use of light microscopy methods that allow the direct observation of single molecules as they perform their biological functions. At the Radcliffe Institute, he is working with collaborators from Harvard Medical School and University of Massachusetts Medical School to apply these methods to the study of how messenger RNA synthesis and maturation are coordinated in eukaryotic cells.
