Nucleic Acid Delivery

Focused on developing platform technologies for the delivery of nucleic acids inside cells. This team is particularly focused on developing efficient delivery vehicles that exhibit high transfection efficacies and low toxicities. The aim here is to develop toolkits that impact gene expression, gene knockdown and genome editing. An example involves the delivery of Cas9 coupled to guide RNA to target DNA modification of specific genes.
