Research Summary

We are interested in discovering new roles for RNA in human disease. We study all aspects of the RNA life cycle, from splicing to translation to degradation. Our broad goal is to uncover new biological phenomena that are relevant to the initiation, progression, or treatment of diseases such as leukemia and muscular dystrophy.
