– The decoding of the human genome has led to the discovery of thousands of genes that do not contain protein information.
Our mission is to decipher the functions of these genes in the immune system. –
About our research
Our group uses transcriptomics, bioinformatics and biochemistry to dissect regulatory noncoding RNA networks in the interaction of the human immune system with infectious agents. Our focus is on ribonucleoprotein complexes contributing to phagocyte immunity in the human lung – a primary site of pathogen attack.
We also investigate how the host’s regulatory RNA networks are undermined and manipulated by pathogens and develop new tools to intervene therapeutically in the host and pathogen RNA circuits.
