Corey Lab

Research

We are a bunch of scientists excited about nucleic acid therapeutics and RNA biology. We use a variety of state-of-art techniques, including next-generation sequencing, live cell imaging, and gene editing.

We use nucleic acids or nucleic acid mimics to explore important cellular processes and to develop novel therapeutic tools and strategies.

Join Our Lab

The Corey Lab is looking for highly motivated graduate students and postdocs to join the team.
