microRNAs (miRNAs) can drastically transform cancer cell transcriptomes, which underlies both pathogenic mechanisms and potential therapeutic approaches. Using miRNAs for cancer therapeutics, however, has encountered roadblocks in terms of delivery efficacy, toxicity, and immunogenicity. In this webinar brought to you by The Scientist, Andrea Kasinski and Masako Harada will explore new ways to overcome these challenges and how they develop more effective miRNA delivery strategies.

Topics to be covered

  • Ligand-based miRNA delivery
  • Using extracellular vesicles for targeted microRNA delivery
