RESEARCH TOPIC

We study the molecular basis of chronic diseases, focusing on the function of microRNAs, small RNA molecules that regulate gene expression and are involved in a variety of biological pathways. MicroRNAs may act as a functional link between different chronic diseases and hold promise as potential biomarkers and therapeutic targets. Specifically, we are interested in: 1. MicroRNAs as a mechanistic link between anxiety disorders, metabolic disease, and cancer; 2. Discovery of microRNA-based biomarkers in body fluids. Additional projects in the lab include studying the genomics and transcriptomics of reproduction and sex determination in vertebrates.
