Hear more from Dr. James Hamilton at RNA Therapeutics this February 2018, as he presents 'The Evolution of RNAi Delivery at Arrowhead'.

RNA Interference is used to silence genes before it produces the protein, which is harmful for the body. However, in order for this to be effective, ways to safely and effectively deliver this therapeutic to its target must also be developed. Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals is one of the companies leading this search. This presentation will cover the previous technologies Arrowhead have used, analyse the changes that have been made to improve the technologies and look at the potential of Arrowhead’s current synthetic siRNA delivery systems including dynamic PolyConjugates.

Topics will explore:

- Older RNAi delivery technologies
- Dynamic Polyconjugates: Pre-clinical and Clinical Experience
- Arrowhead Single Molecule RNAi Conjugates
