Comparison of new vaccine approaches – COVID-19

26 June 2020 | By

The promise of virally vectored DNA and mRNA vaccines is tremendous in terms of vaccine safety and speed of response to new pathogens. This article explores why these approaches have attracted attention in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and why they are highly appropriate for rapid vaccine development and deployment.

Using self-amplifying mRNA vaccines to facilitate a rapid response to pandemic influenza

3 July 2014 | By , ,

Influenza viruses are members of the Orthomyxoviridae family and are a major cause of respiratory tract disease in humans and many animal species. There are three influenza virus types that cause human disease: A, B and C. Type A are further subtyped based on the antigenicity of the hemagglutinin (HA)…

Understanding early mouse embryonic development using single-cell mRNA Sequencing

3 July 2014 | By René Dirks and Hendrik Marks, Department of Molecular Biology, Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences (RIMLS)

Biomedical research often involves the use of cell lines that can be cultured in a laboratory. Individual cells within such cell lines often share a similar morphology. A remarkable exception are in vitro cultured mouse Embryonic Stem Cells (mESCs) – pluripotent cells derived from the blastocyst stage of the mouse…

microRNA manipulation as a host-targeted antiviral therapeutic strategy

13 December 2011 | By Nouf N. Laqtom, University of Edinburgh & King Abdulaziz University and Amy H. Buck, University of Edinburgh

microRNAs (miRNA) are a class of non-coding RNA that regulate the precise amounts of proteins expressed in a cell at a given time. These molecules were discovered in worms in 1993 and only known to exist in humans in the last decade. Despite the youth of the miRNA field, miRNA…
