Oligonucleotide Delivery: Biology, Engineering and Development Conference
Date:6/27/2012

Oligonucleotide technologies, such as siRNA, tap into endogenous, highly conserved and specific catalytic mechanisms to efficiently regulate gene expression. As such, they have the potential to enable the development of novel therapeutic options for disease targets previously considered un-druggable by conventional small molecule and biologics means. However, despite the promise, clinical development has been hindered by the challenges encountered by identifying and developing safe and efficacious delivery formulations.

Since its discovery in 1998, RNA silencing has attracted much attention, with over 50,000 peer-reviewed publications, multiple national and international conferences, and significant investment in the biotech and large pharma with the goal of developing new siRNA-based therapies. Despite the interest and investment this has proven to be more difficult that first envisioned. It is widely recognized that there are gaps in our basic understanding on how to best harness this technology for therapeutic use.

The major topics to be discussed are:

Liposomes, nanosomes, polymeric and nano-particulate delivery vehicles
RNA chemical modifications and conjugates to enable delivery
Protein transduction domain as delivery platforms
Mechanisms of cellular uptake and endosomal escape
Biophysical characterization methods
siRNA delivery vehicle toxicology
Local and systemic siRNA delivery case studies
