Dr. Rhind found his passion for Biology during undergraduate. Following graduate school, he moved to the Scripps Research Institute to study cell-cycle regulation in fission yeast. He became interested in how and why cells regulate the cell cycle in response to DNA damage. He has continued with that line of research in his own laboratory at UMass Medical School, focusing on the regulation of DNA replication by DNA damage.

Dr. Moore is the Project Manager for the ENCODE Data Analysis Center. She has been a member of ZLab since 2017. Her research has focused on the large scale integration of genomic, epigenomic and transcriptomic datasets to better understand gene regulation, particularly in the context of human disease.
