Tariq Rana's Biography

Tariq Rana, Adjunct Professor, Sanford Burnham Medical Research Institute

Tariq M. Rana, Ph.D., is Professor and Director of the RNA Biology Program at Sanford-Burnham. Dr. Rana’s laboratory has discovered fundamental structural and functional features of small RNAs required for gene silencing in human cells. In addition, his laboratory has uncovered mechanisms involving small RNAs and RNA-protein complexes in regulating host-pathogen interactions. Dr. Rana received his Ph.D. from the University of California at Davis and he was an American Cancer Society fellow at the University of California at Berkeley. He is a recipient of numerous awards including a Research Career Award from the National Institutes of Health in 1996. Dr. Rana has advised a number of biotechnology companies and has served as a member of several Scientific Advisory Boards. Prior to joining the faculty of the Sanford-Burnham, Dr. Rana was a Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Pharmacology and Director of a Program in Chemical Biology at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Dr. Rana joined Sanford-Burnham in 2008 to establish the Program for RNA Biology.
