With RNA being the popular new “it” molecule in genetic research, Ayesha discusses Eli Lilly’s new partnership with biotech company ProQR to develop RNA-based therapeutics in this episode. The $1.5 billion deal will see Lilly leverage ProQR’s proprietary RNA editing platform to develop targets of interest. The team discusses how the success of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines have heightened interest in RNA-based therapies.

The editorial team also talked about a new study that found walking 7,000 steps leads to a decreased risk of premature death among middle-aged adults by 50 to 70 percent. It turns out that the popularized “10,000 steps-a-day for good health” notion is no more than a mere myth as it is not an evidence-based recommendation. The new study provides a basis for the establishment of scientifically-backed guidelines for physical activities like walking.
