Descripción de la oferta

This is a high-risk, high-reward funded project. Our goal is to develop a novel RNA strategy that targets Tau to revert Alzheimer’s disease (that could also be applied to other diseases). The project requires extensive RNA manipulation. If successful, patents are expected as well as the extension of funding/contract to phase II.

The project is a collaboration between the University of Seville (Spain), the Autonomous University of Madrid (Spain), and the University of California, San Diego (USA).
