We are proud to announce the Oligonucleotide Therapeutics and Discovery Conference, 21st - 22nd September, 2022 in London, UK

Oligonucleotide therapeutics - the emerging medicine class - are harnessing the therapeutic benefit of targeting genetic material utilising oligonucleotide conjugates, antisense oligonucleotides (ASOs), mRNA and RNAi. Their market growth is driven by their potential to provide more efficacious and less toxic alternatives to small molecules as well as their ability to affect targets that have been considered "non-druggable". Despite recent technological advances, achieving efficient oligonucleotide delivery, particularly to extrahepatic tissues, remains a major translational limitation and thus investments in oligonucleotide therapeutic discovery have created an emerging market need for drug delivery technologies

The Oligonucleotide Therapeutics and Delivery conference reveals the latest in oligonucleotide discovery and delivery, with presentations on targeted delivery mechanisms, oligonucleotide chemistries and important clinical advances. Global experts from big pharma and leading biotechs will explore the emerging therapeutic applications of oligonucleotides with case studies surrounding the discovery and development of oligonucleotide therapeutics as well as CMC and regulatory standpoints. The two-day conference will bring you high-quality insights and industry connections on the latest clinical trial candidates and a platform for exchanging ideas for tackling the biggest challenge: DELIVERY.

Benefits of Attending

  • Listen to case studies presenting on pre-clinical and clinical research in areas such as oncology and what can be learned for future clinical trials
  • Deepen your understanding of oligonucleotide therapeutic delivery and explore the latest innovations in extrahepatic oligonucleotide delivery and target specificity
  • Understand the regulatory and CMC environment surrounding oligonucleotide therapeutic development
  • Explore developments in oligonucleotide chemistries and examine developments in novel applications of antisense oligonucleotides and siRNA
  • Engage in the latest innovations in oligonucleotide therapeutics such as utilising AI machine learning to drive the discovery of novel therapeutics
