About the RNA Bioscience Initiative

Modern biology has been revolutionized by the discovery that many processes of fundamental importance are regulated by RNA molecules. We continue to realize the potential of RNA regulatory mechanisms, illuminating biology and advancing medicine through development of new RNA therapeutics. Major knowledge gaps remain in the basic, diagnostic and therapeutic areas of RNA biology, and much remains to be discovered about mechanisms of RNA regulation and their impact on biology and disease.

Illuminating FSHD Research

RBI faculty member Sujatha Jagannathan, PhD hosted World FSHD Day on June 23 2019. World FSHD Day brought patients and their families together with researchers and clinicians to discuss Fascioscapular Humeral Muscular Dystrophy and raise awareness for the FSHD Society, which research in the Jagannathan lab.
