BMBDG Seminar – Dr. Yizhou Dong

Title: “Development of nanomaterials for mRNA therapeutics, genome editing, and cell therapy”

Dr. Yizhou Dong, Division of Pharmaceutics and Pharmacology, College of Pharmacy, The Ohio State University

Abstract: Messenger RNA (mRNA) has shown great promise for broad therapeutic applications. However, the efficient and safe delivery of mRNA remains a key challenge for the clinical use of mRNA-based therapeutics. Lipid and lipid-derived nanoparticles possess unique properties for mRNA delivery. In this seminar, I will describe the development of lipid-derived nanomaterials for delivery of multiple types of mRNAs and their potential applications for treating genetic disorders, cancers and infectious diseases.
