EMERYVILLE, Calif., May 2, 2023 — Nutcracker Therapeutics, Inc., a biotechnology company dedicated to developing transformative RNA therapies through its proprietary technology platform, will present at this year’s TIDES USA, or the Oligonucleotide and Peptide Therapeutics conference, being held May 7-10, 2023 in San Diego, CA.
Nutcracker Therapeutics has developed its Nutshell™ platform of peptoid delivery vehicles for use with its mRNA therapies. This unique class of structurally-tunable peptoids contains both a hydrophobic domain and an amino-functionalized cationic domain to self-assemble with mRNA cargos, enabling the safe and effective delivery of mRNA for Nutcracker’s therapeutic programs.
Title: Delivery in a Nutshell™: Activity-informed design of cationic peptoids with enhanced efficacy for the uptake and expression of mRNA therapeutics
Presenter: Colin McKinlay, Senior Director, Chemistry and Delivery Technologies
Session: Targeted Therapies and Delivery of Macromolecules
Date: May 9, 2023 at 9:00 am PT
“We have taken some of the most difficult challenges in mRNA therapeutic delivery head on, building our Nutshell delivery solution to complement our therapeutic programs and round out our end-to-end drug development process,” remarked Chief Executive Officer Igor Khandros, Ph.D. “Through our differentiated nanoparticle approach, we look to overcome hurdles of chemical instability, innate immunogenicity, and inefficient in vivo delivery to fully realize RNA’s clinical potential.”
