Digging Deep To Understand siRNA Delivery Systems

Department: Science & Technology

When chemists get involved with siRNA delivery, they want to do more than just find new materials to take therapeutic nucleic acids to their targets. They want to understand how those materials work.

"The field of nucleic acid delivery has matured to the point that we need to be asking fundamental questions rather than empirical questions," says David Putnam, assistant professor of biomedical engineering at Cornell University.

Putnam, like many other chemists, is using . . .
