    About This Project

    There are few new options for cancer treatment. One class of biomolecules recently being explored is microRNA (miRNA). These are small molecules that control many cell functions. While miRNA function is understood, methods for therapy aren’t available – with effective miRNA delivery being the limiting factor to using it for cancer therapy. This research aims to develop tools to deliver miRNA to cancer (and other diseases).
