How RNA shape regulates gene expression

The Nam lab asks how RNA shape regulates its function. We study the biochemical and structural mechanisms in RNA-mediated gene regulation pathways important for normal and disease states. We are studying how noncoding RNAs are processed and regulated by RNA-binding proteins and chemical modifications. We also apply our understanding of the molecular mechanisms to find new avenues for drug discovery.
