Research Forward funds project to discover new RNA therapies

Research Forward, formerly known as the UW2020: WARF Discovery Initiative, will fund 11 projects across campus for up to two years. The new initiative is supported by the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF). One project funded, Therapeutic Targeting of Post-transcriptional RNA Processing in Human Diseases, is led by Aaron Hoskins, associate professor of biochemistry and chemistry, with help from other investigators including Randall Goldsmith, professor of chemistry. Together, the multidisciplinary team will work to discover new RNA-based or RNA-targeting therapies for human disease.
