RNA Delivery Business With Liberate's Shawn Davis, Ph.D. & Walter Strapps, Ph.D.
Source: Bioprocess Online
Earlier this year, Shawn Davis, Ph.D. left a pretty comfortable position at AstraZeneca (and Amgen before that, and Milliken – and others – before that) to lead Liberate Bio. He brought along another industry notable in Merck/Intellia alumnus Walter Strapps, Ph.D., who serves as CSO at Liberate. Why'd they do it? Because RNA delivery is such a crucial step toward revolutionary genetic medicine, but it's tough science. They think they can change that. On this episode of the Business of Biotech, Drs. Davis and Strapps share how they're applying automation and machine learning technologies to minimize the challenges associated with targeted delivery of genetic medicine and overcome the limitations of AAV. During our conversation, they both leaned hard into how their previous experiences have shaped the work they're doing, and the wide-open business opportunities Liberate Bio is creating.
