Our Mission

At the RNA Institute, we focus on developing tools and analytics for basic RNA science and for advancing RNA therapeutics and diagnostics. We disseminate these tools and technologies through collaborations with researchers in a breadth of disciplines and disease focuses, critical to human health.  As a molecule, RNA is ephemeral and challenging yet the rewards it could yield are invaluable. We endeavor to overcome these obstacles by developing the technologies for RNA science and enabling the development of novel RNA therapies that precede and regulate protein synthesis. Utilizing our world class scientific staff, extensive array of advanced equipment, public private partnership know-how, and emphasis on mentorship, we are poised to achieve these goals.
