RNA therapeutics and Neuroscience
Virtual meeting: instructions to connect are communicated upon registration.
The RNA & NEUROSCIENCE meeting aims to bring together graduate students, academic and industry scientists working in the fields of RNA and the Central Nervous System (CNS) to present their latest research results, ideas, developments, biological medical applications and discuss the current concepts and the challenges that we are facing for future research.
RNA therapeutics is a novel technology that provides a unique treatment for a variety of diseases. While it has been a success for the COVID19 pandemic, the RNA community still has the challenge on delivering some of these RNA molecules in other parts of the body (e.g. brain and cardiac tissue) and better specificity to have a full therapeutic effect. Therefore, this meeting will explore the novel RNA therapeutics that are been currently developing and their mechanisms to cure a variety of diseases.
Additionally, the complexity of the brain provides a unique challenge to find therapeutics to cure neurodevelopmental disorders and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and ALS. These diseases are characterized by the lack of gene regulation causing protein imbalance at the synapses and therefore cell death. Thus, in this meeting we will also explore the mechanisms that cause these diseases and the novel therapeutics that has been currently developing for their cure.
This international conference is organised in the framework of the BIOPHARMACEUTICALS ARD CVL Programme.
