  • Control over the delivery of different functionalities and their synchronized activation in vivo is a challenging undertaking that requires careful design and implementation. The goal of the research highlighted herein was to develop a platform allowing the simultaneous activation of multiple RNA interference pathways and other functionalities inside cells. Our team has developed several RNA, RNA/DNA and DNA/RNA nanoparticles able to successfully complete such tasks. The reported designs can… CONTINUE READING
