Dr. Karen Anthony is currently working as senior lecturer in Molecular Bioscience at University of Northampton. She is a leading researcher on RNA processing and RNA-based therapeutics. Karen has worked on a number of neurological drug and disease targets including tau and TDP-43 for Alzheimer’s and motor neurone disease.
Her ongoing work is focused on the neuromuscular disorder, Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). Karen played a key role in the clinical development of the first FDA-approved drug for DMD, an antisense oligonucleotide called Exondys 51 (eteplirsen).
She has developed, optimised and validated standardised protocols to accurately quantify dystrophin mRNA and protein in clinical trials and has helped international pharmaceutical companies with methodology for clinical trial biochemical outcome measures. Karen’s pre-clinical and clinical work in this area is helping to expedite the translation of exon skipping candidate drugs to the clinic.
