Project Description

About the project of Yunpeng

The main purpose of my project is to repair damaged or degenerated cartilaginous tissue by employing RNAi strategies. Nanocarriers will be loaded with siRNA to stimulate the body’s intrinsic capacity to regenerate. The nanocarriers will be coated with targeting groups on the surface. Nanocarries will be delivered locally to achieve a controlled release of biological active agents and may help to regenerate the damaged cartilage. This work will be validated in cell models. Imaging technology will also be employed to enable nanocarriers to be tracked in vitro and in vivo.
