Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-10-050
Budget: 05/01/11 - 04/30/12

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): RNA interference (RNAi), a potent and selective gene silencing mechanism, has revolutionized the field of biological science. The ability of RNAi to specifically down-regulate the expression of any gene has had a profound impact on the study of gene function, and holds great promise for in vivo functional gen...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-09-080
Budget: 05/01/10 - 10/31/10

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The discovery of RNA interference (RNAi) promises to revolutionize medicine due to its unlimited potential to treat genetic, epigenetic and infectious diseases. RNAi mediated by synthetic short interfering RNA (siRNA) can theoretically be employed to target any disease gene. However, siRNA-mediated silenci...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-06-03
Budget: 07/10/08 - 06/30/10

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The recent discovery of RNAi has created the opportunity to develop an entirely new class of drugs against a variety of human diseases that work by silencing disease causing genes. The development of RNAi-based drugs, however, has been hampered by difficulties in delivery and manufacturing, as well as the act...
