By interweaving nucleic acid scientists with clinicians dedicated to finding new cures, our goal is to create a new paradigm for organizing molecular research that enables the rapid application of new biological discoveries to solutions for unmet challenges in human health
RNA birth creates and regulates the complex patterns of gene expression that make plant and animal life possible. The alternative splicing of mRNAs dramatically increases the coding potential of the genome and is thought to be the main source of protein diversity in humans.
RNAs sculpt the expression of proteins by regulating the transcription, splicing, mRNA stability, and protein translation. RNA regulators are remarkable not only for the biological importance but also for their potential to be targets for drugs to treat human diseases.
