Director of the RNA Institute, Professor of Biological Sciences
My scientific career has revolved around understanding the role of RNA in biology. The focus of my lab is neuromuscular diseases with the goal of translating basic science into therapeutic strategies using a combination of biochemical, cellular, genomic and computational approaches. Research in my lab has focused on RNA splicing with an emphasis on understanding the mechanisms of a common form of muscular dystrophy, myotonic dystrophy, as well as other microsatellite diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and spinocerebellar ataxias (SCAs).
