What is mRNA?

Messenger RNA (mRNA) is a large family of RNA molecules that convey genetic information from DNA to the ribosome, where they specify the amino acid sequence of the protein products of gene expression. 

A new class of therapeutics based on mRNA called mRNA therapeutics is currently being explored by a number of companies.
