Future Medicines – What have we learned from mRNA vaccines

The Covid-19 vaccines are estimated to have saved more than 20 million lives during the pandemic. Two of these vaccines used a revolutionary biological approach to generating a medicine rapidly and flexibly (messenger RNA), and a revolutionary innovation in delivering these medicines safely and effectively (lipid nanoparticles). This is likely to be the start of a new generation of medicines made from RNA for targeting cancer and many other diseases.
