Research Abstract
My labs major scientific goal is to understand how RNA molecules orchestrate gene expression pathways and contribute to disease pathologies. My lab aims to develop biochemical technologies to study RNA inside living cells, aiming to address many important questions that remain about RNA structure and function on a systems level. In addition, my lab is focused on inspiring learning and educating students, postdoctoral fellows, and clinician-scientists to become a new generation of leaders in academic and industrial pharmacology, and translational sciences.
