Nissa specialises in mRNA therapeutics

Nissa aims to develop new mRNA therapies to treat human diseases and disorders.
​Nissa is an experienced research assistant with a particular interest in molecular biology, genetics and gene therapies. She hopes to develop new technologies in this field, by optimising mRNA delivery and expression, to ultimately modify the expression of genes that are dysfunctional in human disease or disorders. She has worked with several model systems including primary cell culture, mice and Drosophila. Nissa is also experienced with using CRISPR/Cas9 constructs both in vivo and in vitro.
