TriLink BioTechnologies Partners with Johns Hopkins University to Establish New RNA Innovation Hub

Tuesday, May 14, 2024

TriLink BioTechnologies (TriLink®), a division of Maravai™ LifeSciences, and a leading global provider of life science reagents and services, has announced a collaboration with Johns Hopkins University to accelerate research in RNA therapeutics and discovery. Together, they are establishing a new center within the Johns Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering, aimed at advancing research and therapeutic development, leveraging TriLink’s cutting-edge RNA synthesis technology.

TriLink’s investment includes both direct funding for the center and access to its proprietary in vitro transcription technology, CleanScript™. This technology will enable Hopkins researchers to advance mRNA development. Additionally, TriLink will provide technical expertise and access to critical discovery and manufacturing supplies, making it easier for researchers to innovate and apply their findings.

Maravai LifeSciences, stated, “Our collaboration with Johns Hopkins underscores our commitment to advancing nucleic acid-based therapies. By participating in this center of excellence, TriLink aims to share its expertise in nucleic acid production, empowering Hopkins researchers to develop advanced therapies to benefit patients.”

According to Ed Schlesinger, Dean of the Whiting School of Engineering, the center aims to transform human health through breakthroughs in RNA applications. Access to cutting-edge discovery tools will enable Johns Hopkins to expand its RNA research community and drive innovation on campus.

Jeff Coller, Bloomberg Distinguished Professor of RNA Biology and Therapeutics, will lead the center as its inaugural director. Anchored in the Institute of NanoBioTechnology (INBT), the center will serve as a training ground for the next generation of RNA investigators and as a focal point for RNA researchers across various disciplines at Johns Hopkins.
