The RNA Institute is positioned to make significant contributions towards understanding the role of RNA in fundamental biological processes, developing RNA as a tool for science and harnessing this knowledge to improve human health. The Institute brings together teams of researchers from multiple Departments and Universities with expertise in Biology, Bioinformatics, Chemistry, Engineering, Genetics and Structural Biology to achieve our goals.
Training the next generation of RNA scientists with a commitment to improving the number of individuals from under-represented groups is a priority for the Institute. The driving force behind the RNA Institute is our active researchers from multiple Universities who share the common goals of providing outstanding mentoring to our trainees and using the advanced technologies in the Institute to make new discoveries centered around RNA Biology and Chemistry. The long term goal of the Institute is to translate our scientific discoveries into improving the human condition.
