Novel Nanodelivery of siRNA/miRNA Symposium

June 10, 2010

California NanoSystems Institute, UCLA

This  meeting is focused on highlighting recent dramatic advances concerning siRNA and miRNA including the successful delivery of siRNA in clinical settings. We intend to bring together researchers working with biology and medical application of these novel molecules. One of the major issues in the use of siRNA and miRNA for therapeutic purposes is to come up with efficient methods to deliver these reagents. A variety of nanodelivery vehicles can be used for this purpose and we hope the meeting will facilitate discussion on novel nanodelivery methods for siRNA / miRNA.

Keynote Speakers:

"siRNA Delivery by Targeted Nanoparticles: From Preclinical Studies to Patients"

by Mark Davis, Warren and Katherine Schlinger Professor of Chemical Engineering, Caltech     

& Antoni Ribas, Professor of Medicine Hematology/Oncology, UCLA

Special Lecture:

"In Vivo Delivery of siRNA to Immune Cells"

by Hua Yu, Professor of Cancer Immunotherapeutics & Tumor Immunology, City of Hope

Symposium Sessions:

Biology and Medical Applications of siRNA and microRNA

Nanodelivery Systems

Industry Perspectives Panel Discussion

Attendence is free, but registration is required.

Call for Posters! Researchers working on all aspects of siRNA and miRNA nanodelivery are invited to attend the symposium and present their exciting work.  We will be exhibiting posters in the lobby during the symposium.  Please contact to reserve space for your poster.

The symposium is sponsored by the California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) and the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, Signal Transduction Therapeutics Program Area

Event organized by Fuyu Tamanoi, UCLA dept. of Microbiology, Immunology & Molecular Genetics
