|Dr. Christine A. Rushlow is a biology professor at New York University,
as well as a the director of the masters program. She received her Ph.D.
from the University of Connecticut in 1983, where she studied gene
organization under the guidance of Dr. Arthur Chovnick. After working in
laboratories at the Imperial Cancer Research Fund (London) and Columbia
University (New York), she started her own lab at the Roche Institute
of Molecular Biology. As a researcher at NYU, Dr. Rushlow is committed
to understanding the molecular mechanisms that control early embryonic
development. Her research focuses mainly on a key transcriptional
regulator called Zelda, which activates the zygotic genome in Drosophila and works together with other key transcription factors to initiate later stages of embryogenesis.|
Dr. Rushlow teaches the undergraduate Genetics course at NYU and runs a graduate seminar, Current Topics in Genetics. In addition to teaching, she can be found in the Center for Developmental Genetics at NYU, mentoring her undergraduate and graduate students.
