Using Nanomedicines as drug delivery vehicles is attractive because such vehicles can pack drug product more efficiently, enhance its bioavailability, and target specific cells. However, the application of messenger RNA (mRNA) as a therapeutic treatment lacks a safe formulation that can effectively compact the long and negatively charged biomolecule, as well as deliver it into target cells without causing degradation. Join Marianna Yanez Arteta of AstraZeneca in the free, interactive webinar to discover how different scattering techniques are being employed to characterize lipid nanoparticles for efficient mRNA delivery.
