Chakrabarti Lab is interested in understanding the role of RNA in genome regulation. Major focuses are on understanding how RNA-protein interactions regulate molecular functions related to cell proliferation and genome integrity in blood-borne pathogens, Plasmodium falciparum (Malaria) and Trypanosoma brucei (Neurodegenerative disease), and in human cancers.
- Kaitlin presented her research on Telomerase RNA structural rearrangements in Trypanosoma parasites at the UNCC Research & Business Partners Celebration on Dec 7, 2022
- Justin published a pre-print on the composition of Telomerase ribonucleoprotein complex in Trypanosoma brucei on Nov 28 2022.
- Cassie’s review paper on Epitranscriptomics in apicomplexan parasites is now published in PLOS Pathogens.
- Biological Sciences Graduate Program Chakrabarti Lab is interested in recruiting motivated students for research towards earning Masters/Ph.D degree in Biological Sciences.
- Undergraduate Honors Research Program Chakrabarti Lab is currently recruiting undergraduate students who are interested in doing honors thesis in Biological Sciences as part of the University-wide Honors Program.
