Center for RNA Medicine

The Center for RNA Medicine, Department of Clinical Medicine, studies the roles of microRNAs and long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) in human health and disease. We are currently pursuing several research projects focusing on noncoding RNA (ncRNA) functions in the pathogenesis of cancer. Our ultimate goal is to translate our research findings into novel RNA-based therapeutic strategies for treatment of life-threatening diseases.

The Center for RNA Medicine participates in the FANTOM6 project, and has a broad international network of research collaborators.
