Revolutionizing Gene Therapy Delivery

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, robotics/AI

Machine learning is essential to designing the polymers, Murthy emphasizes, because they must be tailored to the specific gene therapy.

“There’s a tight interplay between the payload and in vivo mechanism of action, and the delivery vehicle needed to bring [the therapy] to that location,” he says. “You can’t have one without the other, so they have to be integrated at an early stage.”

The company hopes to use machine learning to explore the polymer design space, giving them a starting point to design a polymer. Subsequently, as the gene therapy moves from the preclinical to clinical stage, they can use artificial intelligence to tweak the polymer to make the therapy work better.
