RNA Biosceince Initiative

Main Image  

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.

RNA Salon Designation

The Colorado RNA Salon is part of a new initiative of The RNA Society.

New Single-Cell RNA-Seq Capabilities

The RBI purchased a Chromium controller from 10X Genomics for generating single-RNA sequncing libraries. We are running initial samples in February 2017 and users will have access to the capability shortly through the Genomics Core.

RBI Welcomes New Faculty Olivia Rissland, PhD

We are excited to announce that Olivia Rissland, Ph.D (@beascientist). will be joining the RBI in Fall 2017. Olivia studies RNA post-transcriptional, decay and mechanisms of translational regulation. Welcome Olivia!
