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 theMedical Center strategic plan.

The Center maintains a Trio Plus Typhoon Phosphorimager in the Medical Center. The main contact for the instrument is Dr. Scott Butler.
