"Antisense Modulation of RNA Splicing for Rare Disease Therapy"

Our DNA carries the instructions to manufacture all the molecules needed by a cell. After each gene is copied from DNA into RNA, the RNA message is "spliced" - an editing process involving precise cutting and pasting. I am interested in how splicing normally works, how it is altered in genetic diseases and cancer, and how we can correct these defects for therapy.


Please join us in Simpson Querrey Auditorium at 4pm on September 11th for his lecture. The lecture will be followed by a reception in the pre-function area outside of the auditorium.
