RNA molecules play highly diverse functions in living cells, including carrying genetic information (mRNA), performing catalytic functions (e.g. ribozyme and ribosome) and regulating gene expression (e.g. various types of noncoding RNAs). Our research is centered on RNA biophysics and cell biology with cutting-edge single-molecule and cell imaging techniques.
