Cardiff University Science Seminar

Prof. Weissman (Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania) will give the SCience Seminar Talk on June 10th at 2pm.

Weissman, in collaboration with Katalin Karikó, discovered the ability of modified nucleosides in RNA to suppress activation of innate immune sensors and increase the translation of mRNA containing certain modified nucleosides. The nucleoside-modified mRNA-lipid nanoparticle vaccine platform the Weissman lab created is used in the first 2 approved COVID-19 vaccines by Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna.
