"A fascinating future is opening ahead of us. The global pandemic and worldwide pressure for a vaccine gave RNA the chance to show what it can do, if positioned properly. After years of trials around how to use this molecule in several applications, the opening came by way of COVID-19 vaccines. We have now expanded our toolbox and created a new therapeutic solution for complex problems in short timelines. With this comes growth in areas to support this new therapeutic modality (i.e., delivery systems and manufacturing schemes)."
