Messenger RNA therapeutics: advances and perspectives

In the framework of the regional Biopharmaceuticals ARD2020 Programme, LE STUDIUM Loire Valley Institute for Advanced Studies together with the Center for Molecular Biophysics are organising an international conference on mRNA therapeutics advances and perspectives.
The continuous research over a decade has led to excellent progress in the mRNA biology field and has extended our understanding of the distinctive features of mRNA. At this stage, researchers have learnt to stabilize and manipulate this biomolecule and now recent findings are actually transforming mRNA into new drugs category with many therapeutic applications. However, efforts on interdisciplinary biomedical approach are still required to translate the potentially commendable preclinical findings on mRNA therapeutics into the clinic. The conference will be held with the objective to discuss and exchange innovative ideas in the path of messenger RNA-based therapeutics. The presentations include internationally renowned biomedical researchers from the diverse area: vaccination, innovative therapies and delivery systems
