Ryuya Fukunaga

The Fukunaga lab is broadly interested in RNA biology. More specifically, the Fukunaga lab investigates the mechanism and biology of post-transcriptional gene regulation controlled by small silencing RNAs and RNA-binding proteins. Our research projects will answer fundamental biological questions...

Animal cells secrete small vesicles (~50-250 nm diameter) that have the same topology as the cell. These vesicles, known as exosomes and microvesicles (EMVs), can be taken up by neighboring cells, completing a pathway of intercellular vesicle traffic. Our...

Michael Wolfgang

The research in the Wolfgang laboratory utilizes biochemistry and molecular genetics to understand the molecular mechanisms used to sense and respond to nutritional/metabolic cues under various physiological and pathophysiological circumstances. They are particularly interested in deciphering the roles of...
