The Pachyonychia Congenita Project is organizing a meeting next month focused on delivering functionally active nucleic acids, including siRNAs, into the skin.
The two-day event will be held on May 5 - 6 in Montreal and will cover current clinical trials using nucleic acids delivered to skin, delivery technologies under development, as well as other topics.
"A panel discussion following the formal presentations will consider the most effective paths forward to the clinic," according to the organizer.
Additional details about the meeting, including an agenda with confirmed speakers, can be found here.
NuGen Technologies has introduced the Applause line of gene-expression analysis products.
Included in the line are the WT-Amp ST and WT-Amp Plus ST RNA amplification systems, which the company said are designed to prepare cDNA targets from greater than 50 nanogram total RNA for analysis using Affymetrix GeneChip Gene ST or Exon ST arrays, respectively.
