RNA-protein interactions; retroviral RNA packaging; aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases; tRNA biology

Members of the KMF lab use a wide variety of biochemical, molecular biology, biophysical and cell-based approaches to answer questions focusing on RNAs and proteins that are involved in retroviral (HIV-1 and HTLV-1) replication and fidelity mechanisms that ensure accurate translation of the genetic code. Additional research projects explore RNA-protein interactions in SARS-CoV-2 and disease-causing mutations in aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases.
