The overexpression of certain proteins leads to neurotoxicity in diseases such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer’s, and Huntington’s. While scientists do not fully understand the mechanisms for these disorders, knocking down gene expression using RNA interference (RNAi) has become a promising area of therapeutic research. In this webinar brought to you by The Scientist and sponsored by 10x Genomics, Nandakumar Narayanan and Edgardo Rodriguez-Lebron will discuss how RNAi modulates gene expression to new RNAi methods to treat neurodegenerative diseases.

Topics to be covered

  • Advancing viral-based RNAi as a therapy for neurological disease
