New RNA Biology research group launches

Members of the RNA Biology Research Group

A new collaborative research group has been set up to understand the ways that RNA-based regulation can be manipulated to control gene expression. 

Members of the RNA Biology Research Group are based in the Brighton and Susssex Medical School and School of Life Sciences

They will work on interlinked but complementary projects using a diverse range of organisms and techniques with the ultimate aim of understanding the ways that RNA-based regulation can be manipulated to alleviate human disease. 

Prof Sarah Newbury, Director of the RNA Biology Research Group, said: “Recent recruitment, publications and grant funding success means that Sussex is now strong in the UK field of RNA biology. We are already working together to share our techniques and have been successful in obtaining funding for equipment as well as RNA biology speakers.

"The creation of this network will help build upon this success by providing further opportunities for collaborations between BSMS and Life Sciences at the University of Sussex. The aim is to increase the visibility of RNA Biology at Sussex nationally and internationally.”
