Research Interests: Micro-RNA Therapeutics delivery: Micro-RNA (miR) molecules have been widely used as therapeutics, especially in Oncology. However, delivery of miRs has been a challenge due to structural instability and side effects of the delivery vehicles. My goal is to identify novel approaches for therapeutic miR delivery. I chose to use Synthetic Biology and protein-based liquid-liquid phase separation condensates as novel delivery vehicles.
