Dr. Grabow’s primary research interests involve ribonucleic acid (RNA) to include the relationship between RNA structure and function, the rational design of RNA nanoparticles, and RNA’s perceived role in the origin of life. His broader interests include points of intersection between scientific concepts and matters of the Christian faith. Dr. Grabow teaches a variety of introductory and advanced classes for both science majors and non-majors.
