RNA interference and the Immune System (NHMRC Project Grant administered by Griffith University) (2012–2013)
RNA interference is a newly discovered means by which we are able to turn off cancer-causing genes with high precision. However, it is difficult to get the drug to every cancer cell. Therefore we are designing and testing new RNA interference molecules that are able to alert the immune system to the presence of the cancer thus causing its elimination. This will prove to be a more effective cancer treatment than current therapies.
