The Laederach Lab is interested in all aspects of RNA structure and folding. We are particularly interested in understanding the relationship between RNA structure (or lack thereof) and function. We study “RiboSNitches,” which are structured elements in RNA that undergo a conformational change if a functional mutation (or SNP) is present.

We are located at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill in the Biology Department. You can reach us by e-mailing Alain Laederach. Our Mailing address is:
