​Abstract:
Lipid nanoparticles (LNPs) serve as carriers for mRNA delivery in a new generation of vaccines, but several challenges remain before this approach can offer broad clinical translation of RNA therapeutics. 
Elin Esbjörner WintersFredrik Höök and Elin Esbjörner Winters will present the interdisciplinary approach established to address some of these challenges within the SSF funded industrial research center FoRmulaEx. 
Examples will include the development of advanced optical microscopy approaches to characterize LNPs with single nanoparticle resolution, new means to label the mRNA cargo as well as live-cell imaging approaches for visualization of endosomal LNP processing and functional mRNA delivery. 
Particular emphasis will be put on the role of protein corona formation on the time-dependent maturation steps that critically unlock cellular LNP uptake and mRNA delivery.​
