Research focus

In my doctoral research, I will focus on the involvement of long non-coding RNAs in relation to infectious disease and cancer development. In this study, I will be involved in the development of a high-throughput screening method based on CRISPR interference. Using the established platform, I will look for functionally relevant long non-coding RNAs and their interaction partners.
