RNA Therapeutics Conference

Advances in delivery technologies and applications of RNA-based drugs for modulation of gene, protein expression and genome editing

London, United Kingdom

We announce the 10th Annual RNA Therapeutics Conference in London on February 20th - 21st 2019.

The field of RNA therapeutics is currently undergoing a major expansion, and the potential for using RNA drugs for personalised medicines and immunotherapy, as well as to address genetic, infectious and chronic diseases will ensure the continued development of RNA therapeutics for years to come.

Join us in February 2019, as our RNA Therapeutics Conference brings together industry experts from leading RNA therapeutics companies 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.
