Oligonucleotide therapeutics – the emerging medicine class – are harnessing the therapeutic benefit of targeting genetic material via antisense, mRNA, RNAi, saRNA and siRNA. Their market growth: CAGR of 13.7% projected to reach USD 8.2 billion by 2024 is driven by their potential to provide more efficacious and less toxic alternatives to small molecules. They bring about the ability to affect targets that have been considered “non-draggable”. Heavy investments in oligonucleotide therapeutic discovery have created an emerging market need for drug delivery technologies.

SMi’s inaugural Oligonucleotide Therapeutics and Delivery conference is here to keep you updated. By bringing together leading representatives of pharmaceutical, biotechnology and academic institutions, the 2-day conference will provide first-hand information on the latest clinical trial candidates and a platform for exchanging ideas for tackling the biggest challenge: DELIVERY. From optimizing particle size to choosing the right nanocarrier systems, the conference will address delivery to non-hepatocyte cells such as cancerous tissues and overview the most successful platforms. Discussions will be centered around improving targeted therapy uniting the field’s biggest players to share their opinions.

Established on the success of our RNA Therapeutics series, we look forward to welcoming you at Oligonucleotide Therapeutics and Delivery to join the conversation around maximizing the potential of oligo-based treatments.

Benefits of attending:

– Gain first-hand insight into oligonucleotide therapy clinical success of the latest developments for novel agents
– Listen to case studies presenting the latest candidates undergoing pre-clinical and clinical research
– Deepen your understanding of crucial delivery methods and available platforms for non-hepatocytic delivery
– Explore the chemistry of oligonucleotide therapeutics and examine novel applications of antisense oligonucleotides in the AstraZeneca Deep Dive
– Engage in the latest innovations of oligonucleotide therapeutics with insights into immunochemotherapeutics, ocular indications and Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

Plus, an interactive half day pre-conference workshop on Target Discovery for RNA Therapeutics
