World's Leading Nanotechnology Event to Host Special Program May 23, 2007 at Santa Clara Convention Center
Nanotech 2007, the nation's largest nanotech conference and trade show, has announced the Merck Nanotech Delivery Request Program will take place at Nanotech 2007.
"With Merck's purchase of Sirna Therapeutics, a leader in efforts to create RNAi-based therapeutics, there may be the opportunity to greatly accelerate research that could significantly alter the treatment of disease," said Bart Romanowicz, Executive Director of the Nano Science & Technology Institute (NSTI), producers of Nanotech 2007. "RNAi-based therapeutics selectively catalyze the destruction of the RNA transcribed from an individual gene, enabling a novel approach to discovering drugs with the potential to produce highly specific, potent, and long-lasting effects."
Representatives from Merck will make a special presentation to researchers and scientists in universities and companies at the conference on May 23.
The presentation will focus on areas Merck is especially interested in developing collaboration around, specifically, enabling technologies that can be applied to the targeted delivery of siRNA particles in-vivo. Examples might include self-assembling polymer nanoparticles and cellular/organ-specific targeting strategies. Merck will also discuss their interest in novel assays to follow intracellular processing and trafficking of siRNA.
The presentation will be followed by a question and answer period and one-on-one meetings.
