AAAS 2018 Live: Dr. Don Cleveland on Designer DNA Drugs

Sci on the Fly

In this episode Dr. Carlos Faraco speaks with Dr. Don Cleveland of the University of California San Diego regarding his work on drug-based gene silencing therapies. Cleveland and the members of his lab use these therapies, also known as designer DNA drugs, to silence genes involved in the development of various neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s and Lou Gehrig’s disease. In addition to these familiar diseases, they also discuss how designer DNA drugs may help those suffering from chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a neurodegenerative disease affecting individuals with a history of repeated head injury, including athletes, military personnel, and domestic abuse victims. While the concept of chronic traumatic encephalopathy was first introduced in the early 1900s due to its prevalence in boxers, the cause of the disease has recently come under significant public scrutiny in the US due to several high-profile stories involving football players. Participants Host: Carlos Faraco, Ph.D., Neuroscience 2016-2018 Executive Branch Fellow at the National Institutes of Justice Don Cleveland, Ph.D., Biomedical Sciences Chair, Departmental of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, UCSD Professor of Medicine, Neurosciences, and Cellular and Molecular Medicine, UCSD Member, Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research Executive Producer: Carlos Faraco, Ph.D., Neuroscience 2016-2018 Executive Branch Fellow at the National Institutes of Justice This blog does not necessarily reflect the views of AAAS, its Council, Board of Directors, officers, or members.

Designer DNA Drugs with Don Cleveland - On Our Mind

Genetics (Audio)

Can we turn off the genes responsible for neurodegenerative diseases? Designer DNA drugs are making this possible. By identifying and targeting the genes that drive disease, scientists are moving closer to treatments for ALS, Huntington's disease, and more. Don W. Cleveland, PhD, Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, UC San Diego joins William Mobley, MD, PhD to talk about how these drugs work and how they will impact patient care.
