AT WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY IN ST. LOUIS
Our Mission is to ask and answer critical questions in identifying why and how cancer metastasizes. We do this by conducting innovative and advanced research in a welcoming, inclusive, and supportive research environment.
Our Research focus is to study the basic mechanisms of non-protein coding RNAs called long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) to target them and use them as biomarkers, diagnostics, and new therapies.
"Circle of Translational Science"
Our research begins by obtaining patient cancer samples (or available patient data), sequence the samples with various methods of next generation sequencing technologies, identify de-regulated long non-coding RNAs and their associated protein interactions and RNA modifications, then use advanced technologies to characterize their function and mechanisms for creating novel lncRNA therapies.
LOVE OUR RESEARCH-MAKE A GIFT TO OUR LAB!
Our goal is to find a cure for cancer and we need funding support for staff, students, and supplies, to do this.
Make a gift below to Silva-Fisher lab by clicking * I want to support "School of Medicine" then amount "$" followed by "Other" and type in Dr. Jessica Silva-Fisher lab. Finally, fill in personal information.
Thank you for your kindness, generosity, and love of RNA!
