DKFZ - RNA Biology & Cancer (B150)

RNA has recently been recognized as an important player in cancer beyond its protein-coding function. Hence, many researchers within the DKFZ are now elucidating the expression, regulation, function and mechanism of short and long non-protein-coding RNAs in different tumor entities. The RNA@DKFZ initiative brings together these DKFZ scientists interested in the regulation and function of different classes of RNA. Foremost, the researchers within this initiative focus on three research topics: 1) microRNA expression, regulation & function in cancer 2) Long non-coding RNA: RNA with structural or regulatory functions 3) Mechanisms regulating RNA biogenesis, processing, activity or stability Our principal aims are: Fostering intramural cooperations - especially beyond the borders of the research programs; Exchanging ideas, methodologies, reagents and expertise among different DKFZ units; Enhancing international visibility for RNA research at the DKFZ; Establishing a critical mass of RNA research at the DKFZ for future network grant applications
