Dr Reebye is involved in the development of therapeutic gain of function studies using novel RNA activation strategies. His work involves close collaboration with private biotechnology and international academic institutions both in the US and Asia. These versatile and powerful new tools for gene activation has shown an impact in experimental regenerative medicine by redirecting adult stem cells towards a surrogate insulin secreting phenotype and also in oncology by improving liver function and loss of tumour burden in cirrhotic models.
