Project Portfolio

Proposed research to selectively deplete a regulatory liver miRNA

Abstract or project description

In this project we will design a drug that will stop a type of regulatory RNA (called a miRNA) from being formed in the liver. Previous research has shown that depleting this miRNA is helpful in several liver diseases. We will then propose three separate branches of a research project using this molecule.
