Department of Genetics



Professor Eric Miska is at the Gurdon Institute( in Cambridge. His cutting-edge research focuses on tiny molecules in our cells called RNAs, finding out how they work, and how they contribute to diseases like cancer.

Research Interests

Professor Miska's lab studies non-coding RNA, epigenetics, and genome stability. Ongoing research projects fall under one of these broader themes: RNA modifications and structure; Small- and non-coding RNA biology; RNA in communication and defense; Genomics, epigenomics, and Inheritance; Adaptive plasticity and evolution.
