Scientific summary

I have a strong expertise in studying how gene-expression is regulated at the post-transcriptional level. Particularly, my research is focused on the development of new tools for the high-throughput analysis of RNA in the context of innate immunity and viral infections. To this aim, over the past few years, I have participated in the development of protocols to measure mRNA levels as well as mRNA half-lives and translation efficiency in a transcriptome-wide manner (Heyer et al., and Patent). I also have knowledge in protocols aiming at characterizing the target sites of RNA-binding proteins in living cells (Singh et al., and Ricci et al.,).
