Modern biology has been revolutionized by the discovery that many processes of fundamental importance are regulated by RNA molecules. We continue to realize the potential of RNA regulatory mechanisms, illuminating biology and advancing medicine through development of new RNA therapeutics. Major knowledge gaps remain in the basic, diagnostic and therapeutic areas of RNA Bioscience, and much remains to be discovered about mechanisms of RNA regulation and their impact on biology and disease.
The mission of the RNA Bioscience Initiative is to create and expand a vibrant center of discovery and innovation in RNA research, diagnostics and therapy. Our goal is to provide a fluid pipeline from basic to clinical RNA research at the Anschutz Medical Campus.
