Amy Weinmen, Ph.D.
Associate Professor, Department of Immunology
University of Washington
Dr. Amy Weinmen's current research is focused on understanding the context in which the T-box transcription factor family utilizes the common epigenetic activities as well as the family member specific transactivation potential to regulate gene expression at both the global and individual target gene level. Importantly, examining these questions in T helper cell differentiation in the immune system provides a valuable model system to define the molecular requirements for establishing developmental gene networks.
