SMi Group 19 - 20 February 2020, London, UK.
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
