RNA Biology Research Group


The research in RNA Biology Research group is focused on gene expression regulation mechanisms associated with chronic inflammatory diseases. Several of our projects aim to elucidate the functions of regulatory RNAs in chronic inflammatory skin diseases and asthma. In addition, we work on elaboration of methods to deliver potentially therapeutic RNAs into immune cells and inflamed epithelium. We collaborate with medical doctors from Tartu University Hospital, researchers from the Faculty of Science and Technology and participate in multiple international collaborative projects. Our research results may contribute to development of novel therapeutic approaches in future.
