About Taiowa Montgomery

Interests: RNA silencing pathways. I am interested in the mechanisms by which microRNAs silence target messanger RNAs and how transcripts are routed, or avoid routing, into RNA silencing pathways involving small interfering RNAs. Outside of the lab I enjoy snow/skate/surfboarding, swimming in the ocean, indie rock, folk rock, rock climbing, and exploring boston by bike.
