RNA Therapeutics Conference

, London , United Kingdom

Innovations in technologies and applications of RNA-based medicine

RNA therapeutics is a rapidly expanding industry with increasingly growing potential for immunotherapy personalised medicines, and treatment of genetic, infectious and chronic diseases. This is reflected with the value of the global antisense & RNA therapeutics market expected to reach USD 1.81 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 7.5%. Furthermore, the recent advent of CRISPR, an RNA-guided gene-editing technology, as well as new strides in the delivery of messenger RNA transcribed in vitro, have triggered a major expansion of the RNA-therapeutics field.

The 2021 conference is set to explore the latest developments in RNA delivery agents and RNA-based therapeutics with the latest case studies on advanced mRNA technologies, oligonucleotide delivery, therapeutic applications and future trends and innovations.

Join us in February 2021, as our 12th annual RNA Therapeutics Conference brings together industry experts from leading RNA therapeutics companies to gain an expert and holistic view on the latest developments in the industry, upcoming regulatory updates and industry implications.

Focus day on RNA Interference - 12th February 2021

As the industry of RNA therapeutics advances this year's focus day will explore the growing potential of RNA interference. The focus day will present sessions that explore the evolving approaches to RNAi including: antifibrotic microRNA-based therapeutics for the treatment of Alport syndrome, self-deliverable RNAi and an exploration into how siRNA can be modified for self-delivery, and targeted delivery of nucleic acid therapeutics. Furthermore, this year's focus day will be highlighting the emerging trends and future outlook of RNAi in the Pharmaceutical industry.
