Join Ohio State’s Center for RNA Biology for its Inaugural Schoenberg Lecture, co-sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences’ Science Sundays public lecture series. The inaugural lecture is titled, “The dawning age of RNA medicines,” and will be delivered by Melissa Moore, Moderna’s chief scientific officer emerita.
We have now officially entered the era of programmable or language-based medicines. These medicines, based on our ability to read and write in the language of life (the genetic code), have the potential to completely transform how we can prevent and treat previously intractable diseases, as well as more equitably deliver healthcare across the globe. Melissa Moore will take lecture attendees down to the molecular level, unraveling how RNA in our bodies helps maintain health, prevent disease, and how it can be used to instruct the human body to treat ailments that have haunted humanity for millennia.
