Delivery of Nucleic Acids and Other Molecules that Modulate Gene Expression

Thursday, April 16, 2015 - 1:30pm to 3:30pm

Room 213 B/C

Delivery of Nucleic Acids and Other Molecules that Modulate Gene Expression

Scope

New therapeutic approaches are rapidly evolving that involve delivery of exogenous noncoding RNAs or inhibitors of endogenous micro-RNAs. This session will highly recent progress on identification of new molecular targets, therapeutic molecule design, and development of new technologies for design and delivery of siRNA, antisense, micro-RNA, and micro-RNA inhibitors (i.e., PNA, LNA, etc.). Abstracts on research at the interface of epigenetics and micro-RNA regulation are of special interest. Reports on advances in utilization and delivery of RNA-guided genome editing technologies (i.e., CRISPR-Cas) are also strongly sought.
