Training the next generation of researchers in RNA therapeutics
Non-coding RNAs such as microRNAs and long non-coding RNAs serve as critical regulators of many biological processes including cardiac tissue remodelling after myocardial infarction. Despite the promise of RNA therapeutics, their success has been hampered by specificity and tolerability issues. The scope of the EU-funded TRAIN-HEART project is to train the next generation of research fellows to develop improved RNA-based therapeutics for the treatment of ischaemic heart failure. Through the establishment of a large consortium of academic and industrial partners, TRAIN-HEART will educate trainees on disease pathogenesis, the therapeutic potential of RNA molecules and novel drug delivery systems.
