The Chivukula Laboratory is housed within the Center for Genomic Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. Dr. Chivukula's prior work has elucidated novel in vivo roles for microRNAs in mammalian tissue regeneration and cancer and has revealed the basis for a previously undescribed form of human lung disease caused by short airway cilia. The lab is currently focused on understanding how these and Mendelian genetic disorders dysregulate subcellular compartments to cause 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, the Burroughs Wellcome Career Award for Medical Scientists, and the ASCI Young Physician-Scientist Award.
