Menu Back to Oligonucleotide-Based-Therapeutics-Conference


April 25-27, 2022: Forum

Your safety is our priority. We are working diligently with our partners and vendors to ensure the necessary safety measures are in place to create a safe and healthy environment for all those who attend our meeting.

DIA is following all recommendations made by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as well as legal mandates, hotel policies, and the expertise of certified Pandemic Compliance Advisors. We will continue to update our practices to ensure they are current at the time of the meeting, and will share our plans with you as we continue to prepare for the meeting.

We are hosting the meeting in person, and we will offer a virtual option for those who are interested in the content and are unable to travel to join us in person. Our omni-channel event will ensure a great experience for all attendees, regardless of how you join us.

Registration for this meeting will open in September to allow us time to finalize and share our health and safety plans so we can take excellent care of you.

The Oligonucleotide-Based Therapeutics Conference brings together leading experts to inform, educate, and share advancements in oligonucleotide-based therapeutic product development. Developed collaboratively by regulators, industry professionals, and academics, the program covers a wide range of topics from the nonclinical, CMC, and clinical areas. The conference offers a unique experience with multiple perspectives presented, and the opportunity to interface with regulators from around the globe.
