How can RNA be used to treat cancer?
Cancer is one of the biggest diseases in the US with thousands of people working to find cures. One class of new therapies uses RNA molecules to specifically target cancer cells. In this project, we will explore RNA therapies currently in use. We will then come up with a new target or approach for the use of an RNA therapy in treating cancer or another disease of your choice. Your findings can be summarized in a scientific paper or presentation.
