“On the Brink of an RNAi Therapeutics Revolution: Overcoming a Billion Years of Evolutionary Defenses”

RNAi therapeutics have great potential to treat human disease; however, due to a billion years of evolutionary defenses, delivery into the cytoplasm remains the rate limiting step. I will discuss the barriers and potential solutions making their way from basic discovery to clinical trials for RNAi therapeutics.
