About the Center

The mission of the Center for RNA Biology is to develop and foster research activities in the broad area of RNA biology. Stacy M. Horner, PhD, Associate Professor in the Departments of Immunology and Medicine, directs the Center. Kate D. Meyer, PhD, Assistant Professor in the Departments of Biochemistry and Neurobiology, co-directs the Center.

The Center for RNA Biology brings together laboratories focused on RNA biology including the study of RNA binding proteins, RNA-based therapuetics, post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression, non-coding RNAs, and RNA viruses. The Center laboratories are located at Duke University and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. The Center also coordinates activities with RNA colleagues from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University.
