Project Description

The project goal is to synthesize novel bioreducible lipids for RNA delivery. The research includes biomaterial synthesis and its characterization. Training will be given in the synthesis of novel bioreducible lipids, formulation of nanoparticles and cell culture. Our Anderson/Langer lab is highly interdisciplinary research which includes synthesis of biomaterials and its invitro and invivo studies for nucleic acid delivery.

Pre-requisites
