Back in March I discussed a new therapy that combines nanotechnology and RNA interference (RNAi) to treat metastatic melanoma, and how basic and applied animal research has contributed to its’ development. Now researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University have reported the development of another nanotechnology and RNAi approach to treating inflammatory … Continue reading Mice, Nanotechnology, and Inflammatory Bowel Disease

RNAi: Send in the Nanobots!
The publication of the preliminary results of a small clinical trial of a new therapy called RNA interference (RNAi) online in the scientific journal Nature is causing quite a stir in the scientific community this week. A team led by Professor Mark E. Davis at Caltech targeted the delivery of a nanoparticle only 70 nanometers … Continue reading RNAi: Send in the Nanobots!
