The RNA Revolution
Decades of research dedicated to RNA science made the rapid development and roll-out of COVID-19 mRNA vaccines possible. McGill University played a crucial role in this history of innovation — and more breakthroughs are on the horizon.
McGill’s researchers are developing new RNA-based treatments for a range of diseases alongside a global community of scientists. The University is ensuring these therapies protect human health for all by engaging meaningfully with Indigenous communities and vulnerable groups, such as the elderly.
Here is a look at McGill’s game-changing research and the people behind the science.
