LSI is part of a team of researchers from Georgia Tech, Emory, Duke, Rockefeller, and UGA that has been awarded funding from DARPA for ‘Thwarting Influenza with RNA-powered Modulators (ThIRM)’.

The DARPA PReemptive Expression of Protective Alleles and Response Elements (PREPARE) program is aimed at delivering a capability to generate programmable gene modulator MCMs (PGM-MCMs) to enable safe, transient, and preemptive activation of intrinsic host defenses against a variety of threats to health.
