Finding a Novel Delivery System for mRNA Therapeutics to Treat Cancer and Heart Failure: EU Project EXPERT Releases Animated Clip
The Horizon 2020 project EXPERT has now released an animated clip illustrating the project’s goal to find a new off-the-shelf delivery system for RNA-based nanomedicines. A first clinical application will be in breast cancer and cardiovascular disease. The short animation aims to show the project’s approach and goals in an easy-to-understand and entertaining format to inform interested non-professionals about the latest scientific pathways and approaches in mRNA therapeutics. In EXPERT, Eurice is responsible for the project management and the communication and dissemination activities arising from the project.
The video is now available on the EXPERT project website and on Eurice’s YouTube channel.

Since the project launch in 2019, the 11 international partners with their various expertise in the entire nanomedicine therapeutics development track are collaborating to complement existing clinical studies with mRNA therapeutics. Moreover, they are striving to overcome some of the main obstacles that mRNA-based therapy approaches are facing on their way to the market. The EXPERT approach could be used for improving diagnostic and therapeutic options for additional types of diseases in the future.
During the first year of the project, the EXPERT partners have made significant progress in realising the project’s objectives. Following still on-going experimental work, the consortium is working hard towards the implementation of a first clinical study focusing on immunotherapy for metastatic triple-negative breast cancer.
