Present Challenges

present challendeNow we are in the most exciting period, as our aim is to understand how miRNAs timely regulate the central clock as well as other behavioral and brain-related pathways. For doing this we generated numerous new tools to study miRNA expression and function in the brain in vivo. Additionally, we have also tools to manipulate the levels of most miRNAs in alive animals. We have a lot of genomic data about mRNAs that associate timely with the RISC, and miRNAs that are regulated by the circadian clock.
