Prof Peter Simpson joins us at Didsbury SciBar to delve into the fascinating world of nucleic acid-based medicines.
The Covid-19 vaccines are estimated to have saved more than 20 million lives during the pandemic.
Two of these vaccines used a revolutionary biological approach to generating a medicine rapidly and flexibly (messenger RNA), and a revolutionary innovation in delivering these medicines safely and effectively (lipid nanoparticles).
This is likely to be the start of a new generation of medicines made from RNA for targeting cancer and many other diseases, and the start of a wave of medicines delivered precisely to different organs using new drug delivery technologies.
This talk will discuss what is possible now, and what might be in the future.
Whether you’re a student, researcher, or simply curious about the future of medicine, this event offers a unique opportunity to learn from a leading expert in the field. Don’t miss out on this free event that promises to be both informative and inspiring.
Monday 18th September. 18:45 start.
