Why RNA?


New frontiers in human health

DNA contains the multi-step instructions for all proteins. However, RNA builds proteins using these instructions. RNA, as a novel therapeutic drug class, has the potential to address problems at any step of protein building, preventing the production of an abnormally made protein. Furthermore, RNA’s ability to turn genes on and off enables scientists to identify the root origins of diseases. This amplifies RNA’s potential to lead to innovative disease treatments and possible cures.
