    Research Overview

    We are interested in how cellular signals are propagated through interactions between RNA and protein, and how these interaction networks malfunction during cancer and disease. While most of the human genome is transcribed into RNA, only a small portion (< 5%) encodes protein; the remainder of the transcriptome includes many classes of small and large noncoding RNAs whose mechanisms are not fully understood. Our vision is to leverage RNA and protein sequencing and imaging technologies to characterize RNA-protein interaction networks and generate novel therapeutic strategies that target protein interaction sites on RNA.
