Research Overview

The research activities within the NCCR RNA & Disease aim at advancing our understanding of fundamental mechanisms in RNA biology, identifying disease phenotypes related to these mechanisms and developing ideas for novel therapeutic and diagnostic approaches. As a first step towards this goal, we will elucidate the molecular underpinnings of fundamental cellular processes and discover novel pathways. Building on the knowledge gained from our basic research, we explore how these findings can be used to solve medical challenges for both diagnostic and therapeutic applications as well as for the development of useful implementations in biotechnology or agriculture. The research activities towards these ambitious goals are divided into three interconnected and highly collaborative work packages (WPs):

WP1: ncRNA functions
WP2: RNA metabolism
WP3: Translation
