[News & Analysis] Cell Biology: NIH Effort Gambles on Mysterious Extracellular RNAs
A $17 million research program, announced this month by the U.S. National Institutes of Health, aims to determine whether RNA molecules are deliberately released by cells as hormonelike signals—and whether such extracellular RNAs can be harnessed for diagnosis and treatment of human diseases.
