Research Interests

RNA molecules are uniquely capable of encoding and controlling the expression of genetic information, often as a consequence of their three-dimensional structures. We are interested in understanding RNA-mediated initiation of protein synthesis, and RNA-protein complexes involved in targeting proteins for export out of cells. We are also investigating the early steps in gene regulation by RNA interference.
