Dr. John F. Reidhaar-Olson

Associate, Department of Biochemistry

Operations Director of the Einstein shRNA Facility


Professional Interests

The shRNA Core Facility provides reagents, expertise, and infrastructure to enable gene modulation studies at scales ranging from individual gene to genome scale. The facility houses four genome-wide arrayed shRNA libraries targeting human and mouse genes, state-of-the-art robotics to enable high-throughput lentivirus production, and high-content assay equipment for arrayed screen readouts. Selection-based screens using pooled shRNA and CRISPR libraries are also supported. In addition, human and mouse ORF libraries are available for gain-of-function or rescue experiments.

Collexis Research Profiles
Einstein Research Profiles (ERP) is one of the innovative technologies to create collaborative bridges within and across the entire bench-to-bedside-to-population spectrum of research. The ERP website has been developed in partnership with Collexis to give investigators easy access to PubMed publications, coauthor networks, information about NIH grants, and research networks.
