Personal profile


My team studies eukaryotic RNA metabolism in health and disease. Our research is inspired by the fundamental need to understand the human genetic code. Through the combined use of next generation technologies and evolutionary conservation in model organisms, we aim to accelerate the discovery of basic gene-function.
