The research team led by Professor Lee Hyukjin of Ewha College of Pharmacy succeeded in developing a manufacturing method to mitigate the high costs and maximize the treatment effect of the existing synthetic genetic treatments.


The team’s achievement was based on the successful delivery of siRNA, which is expected to facilitate the mass production of anticancer genetic treatments. The research results were published on October 2 as a feature article in Chemical Communications, a renowned international journal in chemistry.
