For a drug to be effective, it needs to reach specific pathological sites. To do this, it must overcome numerous physiological barriers and defense mechanisms designed to keep exogenous elements out of the body. Therefore, scientists pursue drug delivery systems that allow drugs to reach their intended sites in a controlled manner.
In this webinar brought to you by The Scientist, Kate Adamala and Niren Murthy will present their latest findings on cutting-edge drug delivery systems constructed using synthetic biology platforms, including synthetic cells and new strategies to enhance endosomal escape.
Topics to be covered
- Synthetic cell production and applications
- Safety and security considerations for working with synthetic cells
- Small molecule endosomal disruptive agents for mRNA and siRNA delivery
- Acid degradable lipid nanoparticles for mRNA delivery
- Cas9 RNP delivery in vivo
