The UCL aims to fund research to develop new therapeutics for the treatment of Non Hodgkin's (Lymphoma). This will be achieved by analysing a class of genes called micro-RNAs in fresh biopsy samples from patients with newly diagnosed lymphoma. These genes are amenable to targeting by a class of drug-like molecules called anti-miRs. By identifying micro-RNAs that are aberrantly active in lymphoma, new anti-miRs will be designed and their activity tested in animal models of lymphoma. Those which show promise will be considered for clinical trials.
