Project description

The research project describes the design of pulmonary delivery strategies for small RNAs (siRNA and miRNA) and their evaluation in several in vitro and in vivo therapeutic models. The presented project aims to investigate if an optimized formulation of small RNAs may provide a significant therapeutic benefit.
