Prof. Haobin Wang - CU Denver
We are currently using small aromatic molecules that are not expected to disrupt structural aspects of the unmodified RNA, i.e., thiophene, furan, pyrrole, or pyridyl.
We rely on the use of organic synthesis and photochemistry along with various biochemical and biophysical techniques to achieve our goals. In addition, we are using DFT to guide our efforts in the control of function and structure.
We are always looking for motivated individuals that are interested in getting involved in this exciting enterprise. The interdisciplinary nature of the projects will provide a strong foundation for students and professionals with various interests and goals. Contact Prof. Resendiz if you are interested or have any questions about how to get involved.
