W2 RNA Biology

In frame of this project we would like to strengthen our extensive expertise in non-coding RNA research by appointing two new W2 professorships RNA Therapeutics and Bioinformatics in Cardiovascular Disease at the university hospital in Frankfurt. Dr. Reinier Boon has recently been appointed as professor in RNA Therapeutics and is mainly focusing on the establishment of in vitro and in vivo systems to unravel the role of newly discovered non-coding RNAs, especially lincRNAs, in cardiovascular diseases. The W2 professorship in Bioinformatics in Cardiovascular Disease will provide strong expertise in bioinformatics to support the analysis of large datasets (e.g. microarrays, ChIP and NGS) for the identification of new biomarker and to generate databases mainly focusing on the non-coding Genome.
