Nanoparticle Reagent Simplifies Gene Expression Programming

Novel nanoparticle carriers were used to deliver mRNA directly to specific cell types (T-cells of the immune system and blood stem cells) in order to induce short-term changes in gene expression that could be harnessed to treat diseases ranging from cancer to diabetes. More...
