Dr. Chivukula conducts basic scientific research in the Sabatini group at the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research. His prior work has elucidated novel in vivo roles for microRNAs in mammals and revealed a previously undescribed form of human lung disease caused by short airway cilia. His current work focuses on the roles of lysosome dysfunction in driving genetic and sporadic forms of interstitial lung disease. Dr. Chivukula’s research has been recognized with the Michael A. Shanoff Award, selection to Forbes Magazine “30 Under 30”, selection as a fellow of the Parker B. Francis Foundation, and the Burroughs Wellcome Career Award for Medical Scientists.
