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.
