RNA research is an interdisciplinary endeavor that spans biology, medicine, agriculture, mathematics, physics, and chemistry. Ohio State’s Center for RNA Biology houses the single largest group of RNA experts in the country – more than 250 faculty, staff, students, and postdocs. The center’s mission is to advance life sciences research and education at the university by building on existing strengths in RNA biology, developing synergies through interdisciplinary initiatives and outreach, attracting and retaining outstanding faculty, and bringing the best graduate and postdoctoral researchers to the university.
The Center for RNA Biology is the home of 40 labs with a broad range of RNA-related Research. Our Center facilitates a monthly seminar series held on the second Tuesday of the month during the school year. Our Seminar series hosts world-renowned speakers from around the country to talk about their scope of work in the RNA field.
