The scientists’ approach directs cells’ recycling enzymes to cancer genes’ RNA and cuts up key segments to prevent them from doing harm. The tactic worked against the MYC cancer gene, and also two other challenging cancer genes.
Matthew Disney, Ph.D. has been named the first Institute Professor of The Wertheim UF Scripps Institute. Disney invented a search-and-destroy system for incurable diseases that targets RNA.
It was the first major scientific conference at the institute since the pandemic began, and so researchers relished the opportunity to share recent work and reconnect.

The findings show it is possible to substantially accelerate the drug discovery process. The technique opens new doors to treating diseases by targeting their RNA processes, said Disney.
As cells are building proteins, the process is occasionally halted in error prior to completion. How cells sense these glitches is clearer thanks to Joazeiro lab.
The Karbstein lab has discovered how ribosomes are remodeled in response to stress, altering their protein output.
Disney designed the ALS compound by applying nearly 15 years of research finding druggable structures on RNA.
Alicia Angelbello, Ph.D., a student of the Skaggs Graduate School, studied with UF Scripps Chemistry Department Chair Matthew Disney, Ph.D. She has been awarded the American Chemical Society’s Nobel Signature Award. UF Scripps Chemist Matthew Disney and Skaggs Graduate School student Alicia Angelbello devised a way to potentially treat a…
