Functions of circular RNAs

    Project: Research

    Project Details

    Description

    An unusual type of molecule, circular RNA, was recently discovered to be present in human cells, and to potentially affect the ability of cancer cells in invade and metastasise. We will investigate the interactions these circular RNA molecules have with other molecules, what functions they have, and how they affect cancer cell invasion and metastasis. This could potentially reveal new ways of intervening in cancer metastasis, leading to new therapeutic modalities for cancer patients.
