The aim of this project is to bring together subject matter experts from the academic and non-academic sectors to develop and establish proof-of-concept of the utility of a new platform for fast and general elucidation of the interaction between proteins and RNA. The development of analytical methods for identification of RNA-binding proteins (RPBs) and their corresponding RNA motifs, will facilitate: i) a deeper understanding of the roles of gene regulation and protein expression; ii) accelerate development of personalised medicines via regulation of protein expression; and iii) enable rapid identification of proteomes involved in specific diseases. In doing so, this project will have outputs which in the medium term will have significant market opportunities and societal benefits, including, but not limited to, stimulating job creation in the pharmabiotech and diagnostics sectors and in the longer term reducing costs for national and EU healthcare budgets.
