Paulina Pawlica, PhD

  • ASSISTANT PROFESSOR | Microbiology

Research Topics:

Biochemistry, Gene Regulation, RNA, Viruses and Virology

Dr. Pawlica is a molecular virologist with an expertise in RNA biology. Her research group uses a combination of molecular virology, RNA biochemistry and bioinformatics to answer fundamental, mechanistic questions with regards to the involvement of small non-coding RNAs in viral infections. Specifically, the Pawlica lab studies how herpesviruses use ncRNAs to increase oncogenic potential, as well as functions of newly discovered miRNA-like RNA expressed by SARS-CoV-2.
