November 6: pre-conference workshop: challenges and opportunities to commercialize RNA in Drug Developments;

November 7-8: Main conference
With exciting developments in RNA therapeutics research emerging every day, it is vital to examine the interaction of RNA with other small molecules. To rationally design new classes of RNA based drugs it is critical to learn about different mechanisms to alter gene expression as well as how RNA can be used either as a target or a tool to achieve this goal.
This 2nd international conference will address these key issues along with strategies for RNA based drugs to successfully integrate into the marketplace.

Join the international group of experts on RNA to discuss the latest on:

- Aptamers
- Spiegelmers
- Allosterically regulated RNA lassos
- siRNA
- Novel ribozymes
- Ribonomic clusters
- Group II introns to develop a gene targeting vector
- Silencing gene expression by RNAi
- Evolved nucleic acid sensors
- Peptide mediated RNA delivery

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to hear the state-of-the-art on RNA - therapeutics from leaders in industry and academia.
