Strategic Research Institute’s NAWS 2005 now in its 3rd year, follows the success of the Fall 2004 Boston meeting. The progress in the RNAi industry has continued to evolve over the past several years. We witnessed a launch of RNAi related products beginning with siRNA being one of the hottest in the field several years back. Back in 2003, Strategic Research Institute organized its first conference on RNAi resulting in a Spring conference called siRNA in Drug Discovery & Development which resulted in one of the best-attended conferences of the year in the RNAi field with well over 250+ delegates. Later that year, a broader event was organized called Nucleic Acid World Summit (NAWS) focused not only on just siRNA/RNAi but also on other related oligonucleotides in drug discovery & development.
Over the past several years we have seen some collaborations as well as mergers and acquisitions. The RNAi field has now emerged once again. This time miRNA has been the hottest topic the past year. MicroRNA, or miRNA was considered unimportant about a decade ago not until recently where the industry has started to focus beginning with a lot of scientific papers just been published.
