Center for RNA Biology
The Center for RNA Biology: From Genome to Therapeutics provides a means of conducting interdisciplinary research into the function, structure, and processing of RNA. Members of the center are drawn from the faculty of seven departments at the University from both the College (Arts & Sciences and Engineering) and the School of Medicine and Dentistry. The Center supports collaborative research programs, sponsors seminars, and maintains equipment for collaborative research. Plans are underway to expand the member faculty with key hires in areas of interest in the Medical Center strategic plan.
The RNA Center houses a Typhoon FLA 9500 biomolecular imager from GE Healthcare Life Sciences, and QuantStudio 5 Real-Time PCR System and Step One Plus PCR thermal cyclers from Applied Biosystems. The main instrumentation contact is Dr. Scott Butler.
