The regulation of proteins or should I say dysregulation specifically those proteins that cause type 1 and type 2 diabetes, was the major factor that made me purse a quest for knowledge that has brought me to where I am today. Without a willingness to seek an understanding of my wife’s illness I would have never decided to re-educate and leave the logistics industry but yet here I am now some 8 years later and my passion for science has on intensified with the opportunities that I have been lucky to have been given. My initial protein centric view has been superseded by my passion for RNA after all RNA is the mediator between DNA and Proteins.
I am looking at mRNA stability and the creation of synthetic mRNA elements. These synthetic mRNA elements can be used as a potential therapeutic.
