New publication- PNAS 2022
Drug discovery generally investigates one target at a time, in sharp contrast to living organisms, which mold ligands and targets by evolution of highly complex molecular interaction networks. We recapitulate this modality of discovery by encoding drug structures in DNA, allowing the entire DNA-encoded library to interact with thousands of RNA fold targets, and then decoding both drug and target by sequencing. This information serves as a filter to identify human RNAs aberrantly produced in cancer that are also binding partners of the discovered ligand, leading to a precision medicine candidate that selectively ablates an oncogenic noncoding RNA, reversing a disease-associated phenotype in cells.
Nano Center Annual Conference, 2022.
Every year, a two-day conference is held by the Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. The event provides an excellent opportunity to present the research of the Center's members and their students and enhances the mutual interactions, connections and discussions.
