Organizers: Karolinska Institutet&partners
The biannual International Round Table (IRT) meetings are the conferences with the most respectable pedigree in the field of oligonucleotides/nucleic acids and their components, having a continuous lineage since 1974. The 24th International Roundtable meeting will gather researchers to discuss recent developments in topics related to the chemistry, biology and medicine of nucleosides, nucleotides and oligonucleotides/nucleic acids. The meeting will bring together established scientists and younger investigators from academia and industry from around the world, including students and postdocs, to share observations and discoveries pertinent to nucleic acids and their components.
TOPICS expected to be covered during the IRT 2020
Synthesis, modifications, methods, prebiotic chemistry
OLIGONUCLEOTIDE DESIGN AND CHEMISTRY
Synthesis, modifications, conjugates, labeling, capping, ON and guide RNA design
Prodrugs, antiviral and antibacterial nucleosides
OLIGONUCLEOTIDE/RNA BASED THERAPY
siRNA, mRNA, microRNA and antisense therapy, miRNA targeting, splice correction/switching, gene activation/editing and toxicity.
DELIVERY AND TARGETING OF NUCLEOSIDES AND OLIGONUCLEOTIDES
Cellular uptake-enhancing and tissue-targeting modifications and conjugates, intracellular trafficking, protein interaction.
APPLICATIONS OF NUCLEIC ACIDS BEYOND THERAPY
Nanotechnology, origami, diagnostics, biophysics of nucleic acids, mechanisms and reactions involving nucleic acid components
NUCLEIC ACIDS: STRUCTURE, RECOGNITION AND CLEAVAGE
Aptamers, ribozymes/DNAzymes, artificial nucleases, enzymology of nucleic acid processing, small molecule recognition of nucleic acids, CRISPR/Cas
