Center for RNA Biology and Medicine
The Center for RNA Biology and Medicine at the University of California, Riverside is a multi-disciplinary research center that builds upon UCR’s deep and unique strengths in RNA research and facilitates interdisciplinary interactions to promote fundamental science discoveries and to address RNA-centric industrial, biomedical, and therapeutic needs.
Join us for the 2nd annual symposium on November 3, 2023
Our symposium will feature keynote speaker, Dr. Don W. Cleveland, 2018 Breakthrough Prize in Life Science and a lineup of esteemed investigators, Dr. Gloria Brar, University of California-Berkeley, Dr. Jens Lykke-Andersen, University of California- San Diego, Dr. Joseph Puglisi, Stanford, Dr. Yongsheng Shi, University of California - Irvine, Dr. Lili Wang, City of Hope, Dr. Yinsheng Wang, University of California - Riverside, and Dr. James Ellis - SickKids Research Institute.
The Division of Biomedical Sciences within the School of Medicine at the University of California Riverside is seeking to hire three new faculty members at the tenure track assistant professor, tenured associate or full professor rank. The search area is broadly defined, including RNA.
Key areas of current research include the elucidation of RNA biogenesis, RNA processing and modifications, RNA coding of phenotypic variability, and establishing the role of RNA in disease and the exploration of RNA-based-and RNA-targeted therapies.
Center investigators are a composition of diverse, talented, and accomplished researchers united by a common goal: to understand the role of RNA across biology and medicine fields.
The Center is planning to recruit new talented RNA researchers to UCR. We anticipate growth of our center in partnership with UCR School of Medicine, CNAS and BCOE.
