RNA Biology: Post-transcriptional Regulation of Gene Expression

We study the post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression by RNA-binding proteins and small non-coding RNAs in the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, using diverse techniques including genetics, genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and computational biology.

“In biomedical science today, we have a phenomenal capacity to acquire and integrate unprecedented quantities of sophisticated data. But invariably, the most crucial element in progress in biomedical science will rest with the individual scientist...It’s essential for the institution, the community and the nation at large to assure scientists of a long-term commitment to foster first-class science. That means we must protect basic research...” Arthur Kornberg
