post-transcriptional regulation

RNA-binding proteins

regulatory networks




My research interests are in the study of post-transcriptional regulatory networks, and their role in human health and tumorigenesis. I am particularly interested in deciphering the regulatory interplay of trans-factors such as RNA-binding proteins and non-coding RNAs by means of computational and molecular biology techniques.
