Consortium Meeting of the BASE Lipid Project
Scientists of the BASE-Lipid consortium met for two days at Evonik’s Hanau site to further coordinate their joint research. Researchers from Bayer, Evonik, NGP Polymers, the Universities of Jena and Würzburg, and ISAR Bioscience are collaborating in this future-oriented project to investigate and develop efficient and safe polymer-based special lipids for RNA drugs of the future. Novel special lipids are to be used to stably “package” RNA drugs and deliver them specifically to the target organs where they are to exert their effects. The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology with an amount in the double-digit millions.
