Dr. Leonard Lipovich and his lab are at the forefront of the exciting new field exploring the functional properties of long-coding RNA (lncRNA). Long believed to be simply a passive intermediary between the DNA and protein, non-coding RNAs are now understood to play diverse roles in regulating gene expression. Dr. Lipovich's work shows how primate-specific lncRNAs contribute to human diseases, including cancers and neuropsychiatric disorders. He is the only person in Michigan to participate in both of the international consortia that have succeeded the Human Genome Project: FANTOM (Functional Annotation of Mammals) and ENCODE (Encyclopedia of DNA Elements), which announced progress to date with great fanfare in September 2012.
