Project: Enabling Nanoplatforms for Targeted In Vivo Delivery of CRISPR/Cas9 Riboncleoproteins in the Brain

PI:   Shaoqin (Sarah) Gong, PhD 
Description:  In vivo genome editing using CRISPR/Cas9 is anticipated to be the next wave of therapeutics for various major health threats, including neurodegenerative diseases. However, to date, very few Cas9-gRNA ribonucleoprotein in vivo delivery methods have been reported, and delivery to the brain has been particularly challenging. The unique nanocapsules we plan to develop will ultimately enable high efficiency neuron-targeted genome editing in the brain, thereby offering new hope to treat devastating neurodegenerative diseases.

Enabling Nanoplatforms for Targeted in vivo Delivery of CRISPR/Cas9 Ribonucleoproteins in the Brain.
In Vivo Nanocapusules carrying CRISPR Cas9 RNP with guide RNA targeting the stop sequence in the Ai14 transgene are intracerebrally delivered to Ai14 mice and gene editing is measured by gain of tdTomato protein expression.
