Raymon Chen received the fall 2021 UROP Student Research Awards. He will be leading a project focus on a novel human lncRNA with an important role in the regulation of fetal hemoglobin (HbF) with the goal of acquiring a new therapeutic target for HbF induction in patients with SCD and β-thalassemia. Targeting lncRNAs therapeutically has the advantages of increased specificity, different RNA-directed therapeutic approaches, and the possibility of small molecule inhibitors. The proposed studies would allow him to gain skills and knowledge of various cutting-edge techniques, such as lentivirus- mediated RNA interference and gene delivery to human hematopoietic stem or progenitor cells.

Congratulations! Nicole Nguyen and Nika Kozlov both received the Summer 2021 UROP Awards.
Nicole's project focused on determining optimal conditions of DMNT1 Inhibitor, decitabine, to induce maximal fetal hemoglobin expression in human erythroid progenitor cells.
Nika's project focused on evaluating the in vivo effects of PGC-1a agonists, ZLN005 and SR-18292, in sickle cell disease mice.
