Melanoma differentiation-associated gene 5 (MDA) is a key RNA sensor implicated in viral infections, autoimmunity, and certain cancer treatments. My project will focus on developing a novel high-throughput screening assay of small molecules antagonists for MDA5 activation and signaling. I am more broadly interested in using chemical understanding to probe biological systems and study mechanistic question with translational applications.
