    Description

    The Center for RNA Medicine at the Clinical Institute focuses on research in RNA medicine. The Center's research program aims to investigate the role of microRNA, circular RNA (circRNA) and long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) in the development of cancer and other life-threatening diseases, with a view to developing new RNA-targeted drugs to treat these diseases. The Center for RNA Medicine is part of the FANTOM6 research consortium and has a broad, international interface.

    EQUIPMENT AND FACILITIES
    - The Center for RNA Medicine has established modern laboratory facilities of 170 m2 with access to state-of-the-art equipment, which includes includes the following apparatus:

    - EVOS fluorescence (FL) Cell Imaging System (microscope) from Life Technologies.

    - ChemiDocTMImaging System from Bio-Rad for chemiluminescent imaging, colorimetric western blotting applications and DNA/protein gel visualization.

    - ExperionTMAutomated Electrophoresis Station from Bio-Rad for gel-based protein and nucleic acid analysis.

    - QuantStudioTM 6 Flex Real-Time PCR System from Applied Biosystems.

    - Varioskan LUX Multimode Microplate Reader from Thermo Scientific for analysis of functional cell assays based on fluorescence and luminescence as well as measurement of absorbance for e.g. DNA / RNA and protein quantification.

    - xCELLigence® RTCA DP Instrument from ACEA Biosciences for measuring cell proliferation, cell invasion and real-time migration.

    - NovoCyte FlowCytometer from ACEA Biosciences with a resolution of 107 decaders, 3 lasers and an autosampler.

    - MiniSeq from Illumina to i.a. targeted sequencing and small genome sequencing.
