"Our replicon RNA platform is designed to enable controlled expression of antigens and therapeutic proteins to elicit effective immune response against diseases that have historically been difficult to treat or prevent," said Oliver Fetzer, Ph.D., chief executive officer of Synthetic Genomics. "Our expertise in programming viral systems to improve upon natural biological processes is uniquely suited to the aspirations of this collaboration with Janssen."
