The second annual Oxford RNAi Conference, RNAi2007, will address most aspects of biology and application of RNA interference. The conference is aimed at bringing together leading experts in the field from both academia and industry, postdoctoral scientists, graduate research students and research managers. Thus this event provides an excellent opportunity to discover the latest research directions and thinking in this fast moving field in academic and commercial settings as well as to develop new collaborative links.

Conference topics will include:

The role of siRNAs, microRNAs and other non-coding small RNA molecules in gene regulation

RNAi in chromatin modification and regulation

MicroRNAs in health and disease

Technical and methodological advances in siRNA
selection, delivery and optimisation of efficacy of small RNAs in exogenous applications

RNAi libraries in genome-wide functional studies

RNAi in drug target discovery and validation

RNA therapeutics and clinical candidates
