The RNA Institute
Mass Spectrometry Center
The RNA Institute Mass Spectrometry (MS) Center is dedicated to the development of MS-based technologies for investigating the structure-function relationships of natural and synthetic RNA as tools for drug discovery. Consistent with the mission of The RNA Institute, the unique collection of modern instruments and enabling technologies developed by Dan Fabris at the MS Center will be utilized in full-fledged collaborations with colleagues who have projects aimed at reaching a greater understanding of the role of non-coding RNA in gene regulation and viral replication. These insights will lead to the identification of possible targets for early drug discovery operations that could produce new treatments for orphan diseases and alternative drugs for resistant strains responsible for infectious diseases.
