Our research group is interested in understanding how RNAs change their structures in order to perform function. Until recently, only snapshots of molecules could be observed, hiding their mode of operation. We employ Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), and other biophysical techniques, to investigate the molecular mechanism of RNA function. When function of these molecular machines becomes apparent, it also provides a variety of unique new drug targets. The lab develops methods in NMR and RNA biochemistry to address these questions. Current projects include viral, bacterial and eukaryotic regulatory RNAs, e.g. microRNAs, ribosomal RNAs or RNA from HBV.
The opponent for the defense of Hannes Feyrer’s thesis, Frédéric Allain, gives a talk at KI Thursday the 28th of April at 3 pm titled “Structural investigation of RNA binding proteins and phase separation in the context of the neuromuscular diseases ALS”
Congratulations Rubin Dasgupta for getting a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship 2021. Way to go!
Julie is joining the lab as a research coordinator after being a Postdoc at Karolinska Institutet since 2014. Now she’ll be working with us at Biomedicum!
Anurupa has been helping us with administration for the past three years. Thanks for these years and best of luck going forward!
Marvin successfully finished a nine month project for his masters in our group and is now off to finish his master’s degree. Best of luck!
