“This agreement with CSIRO broadens the scope of specialised polymer design tools available to Mirus and facilitates our continued efforts to improve nucleic acid transfer capabilities. We expect that utilisation of RAFT will lead to new discoveries and expedite our product development efforts,” Dr Hayes said.
“CSIRO is very pleased to be working with Mirus Bio in the transfection space,” said Cathy Foley from CSIRO.
“The scientists at Mirus are leaders in introducing innovative products in this area and have developed a range of delivery technologies for researchers in the biotech industry that can make use of our polymer technology,” she said.
RAFT has very broad applicability in the biotech and biomedical industry because of the need for new and improved multifunctional polymers for many different applications. RAFT enables the rapid, rational design and prove-out of bespoke macromolecules,” Dr Foley said.
