Hua Shi, who joined the University in 2005, focuses his research on a forward engineering approach to cancer drug discovery and development. Shi's laboratory develops novel technology to fill the gap between “knowing” and “controlling” of normal and abnormal biological processes. Shi’s research provides a new generation of RNA based molecules with which to explore therapeutic models in living cells and organisms.
