MicroRNAs (ribonucleic acid) and other non-coding RNAs are involved in almost every cellular process imaginable. They are also linked to many chronic diseases, including cancer, heart failure, diabetes, and neurological diseases. As such, these RNAs are also becoming targets for drug discovery, and the drugs are rapidly entering clinical trials. Non-coding RNA research is highly translational and can be leveraged to initiate many new collaborations. CEHS’s Dr.
