Benjamin Sabari was a postdoc in Whitehead Institute Member Richard (Rick) Young’s lab investigating how the molecules involved in gene regulation organize into large collective assemblies called condensates. As of January 2020, Sabari is running his own lab at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. We sat down with Sabari to learn more about him and his experiences in and out of the lab.

Whitehead Institute researchers have rewritten the timeline for when and how embryonic cells commit to becoming sex cells, the cells that produce eggs and sperm, and gained insights into the development of testicular cancer.

Beyond the Gene is a collection of pieces across storytelling mediums--text, audio, and video--that together paint a picture of how current research at Whitehead Institute is expanding the understanding of gene regulation.
