Conference Brochure

10th Annual RNA Therapeutics Conference is organized by SMi Group Ltd and will be held from Feb 20 - 21, 2019 at Copthorne Tara Hotel London Kensington, London, England, United Kingdom.

Conference Description:
Fulfilling the potential of genetic discoveries requires the development of therapeutics that can specifically modulate the expression of disease-relevant genes. RNA-based drugs and antisense nucleotides, are promising examples of a newer class of biologics. Researchers have tried to overcome the major challenges for utilising RNAs in a therapeutic context, including: intracellular delivery, stability and immunogenicity.

Bringing together industry experts, to discuss the challenges for clinical translation of RNA-based therapeutics, with an emphasis on recent advances in delivery technologies and present an overview of the applications of RNA-based drugs for modulation of gene and protein expression and genome editing
