Presentation Title: Optimization of ionizable lipids for mRNA delivery
Abstract: Lipid nanoparticles (LNPs) play a key role in the efficacy of mRNA vaccines. Efforts have focused on engineering the ionizable lipid component as it has dramatic effects on safety and efficacy. In this work, we’ve designed a new ionizable lipid optimized for intramuscular administration of mRNA. We also provided insights on the effect of molecular design and nanoparticle physicochemical parameters on mRNA delivery efficiency.
