The Basic Sciences Division hosts a weekly Current Biology Seminar series where leading-edge researchers are invited from around the world to share their latest scientific breakthroughs. Lectures are typically every Tuesday and are held as virtual events.
Steven Hahn, Ph.D.
Professor, Division of Basic Sciences, Fred Hutch
Dr. Hahn studies the molecular machines that make mRNA. At any given time, only certain genes are copied into mRNA because only those proteins are needed for specific cellular functions. Dr. Hahn seeks to understand how the mRNA-producing machines work, and how cells turn them on and off at the right time.
