SMi Group are pleased to present the 11th Annual RNA Therapeutics Conference and Focus Day in London on February 18th - 20th 2020.

The field of RNA therapeutics is rapidly expanding, 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.

The event will focus on the latest research and developments on delivery system technologies that aim to tackle more difficult targets within the human body. This overarching topic warrants high focus and therefore, for the first time in the series, introduce a focus day on Oligonucletide Delivery Systems. The main conference will focus on current developments in the area of mRNA therapeutics in immunotherapy and vaccination.

NEW FOR 2020: RNA Therapeutics Focus Day - Oligonucleotide Delivery Systems

Introducing the only RNA therapeutics conference to hold a full day exploring alternatives to oligonucleotide delivery systems. The global antisense and RNA therapeutics market is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.6% between 2019 and 2025, projected to reach $1.81 billion, this focus day will assess the growing need for research and development of novel delivery approaches to expand the current delivery methods in today's market.
