Chun-Kan Chen, PhD

Assistant Professor, Cell Biology & Physiology

The Chen Lab’s research focuses on a unique class of RNA – circular RNA (circRNA), with the aim of uncovering circRNAs’ regulatory and functional roles, as well as their clinical implications. By utilizing innovative multi-omic and high-throughput screening approaches to identify the genomic elements, RNA structures, and protein components that regulate circRNA functions, we strive to advance our understanding of circRNA’s biological significance and disease relevance. Our long-term goal is to develop circRNAs as a novel RNA therapeutic platform, revolutionizing next-generation RNA technology and therapeutics.
