“Leveraging the components of our Research Engine, we empower scientists across our ecosystem to conduct rational drug design and accelerate the pace of mRNA drug discovery.”
Using mRNA as a therapy is a very different strategy than using other drug classes to treat disease. It is extremely important in human biology. mRNA is a set of instructions that tells cells how to build and send proteins to different sections of the body.
mRNA medications use natural biological processes to express proteins and achieve the therapeutic effect needed. This opens the door to the treatment of a wide range of disorders, many of which are now untreatable with existing technology. Moderna thinks that mRNA has the potential to change the way medications are found, produced, and manufactured in ways that are unprecedented in our business in terms of breadth, speed, and scale.
Moderna’s mRNA RESEARCH ENGINE services enable it to advance new product ideas into development candidates through its drug discovery efforts, and includes infrastructure to enable rapid supply of thousands of preclinical mRNAs for research involving in vitro and in vivo experiments in order to speed programmes from concept to development candidate designation.
The mRNA DESIGN STUDIO from Moderna allows for the quick creation of numerous mRNAs. Moderna’s exclusive in-house digital application suite includes a Sequence Designer module that allows you to customise a full mRNA with ever-improving rule sets based on our mRNA design experience. To design each mRNA sequence, mRNA DESIGN STUDIO uses cloud-based computational resources to run various algorithms we’ve built. We can supply flexible computing capacity on demand thanks to cloud-based capacity, allowing the Research Engine to power parallel intake and design of various mRNA sequences.
