Our lab’s first paper!

We are excited to share that our lab’s first paper Translation of cytoplasmic UBA1 contributes to VEXAS syndrome pathogenesis” is now published at Blood.

Our work highlights a genotype-phenotype correlation in VEXAS syndrome based on levels of UBA1b translation. This was a tremendous collaboration with Drs. Achim Werner and Peter Grayson and a big congratulation to the rest of the team!
