3rd Annual Nucleic Acid World Summit, Boston, MA

November 1 to 2, 2005   Hyatt Regency Cambridge - Cambridge, MA

Strategic Research Institutes NAWS 2005 now in its 3rd year, follows the 
success of the Fall 2004 Boston meeting.  The progress in the RNAi 
industry has continued to evolve over the past several years.  We 
witnessed a launch of RNAi related products beginning with siRNA being 
one of the hottest in the field several years back. Back in 2003, 
Strategic Research Institute organized its first conference on RNAi 
resulting in a Spring conference called siRNA in Drug Discovery & 
Development which resulted in one of the best-attended conferences of the 
year in the RNAi field with well over 250+ delegates.  Later that year, 
a broader event was organized called Nucleic Acid World Summit (NAWS) 
focused not only on just siRNA/RNAi but also on other related 
oligonucleotides in drug discovery & development. 

Over the past several years we have seen some collaborations as well as 
mergers and acquisitions.  The RNAi field has now emerged once again.  
This time miRNA has been the hottest topic the past year.  MicroRNA, or 
miRNA was considered unimportant about a decade ago not until recently 
where the industry has started to focus beginning with a lot of scientific
papers just been published. 

Join us in November 2005 in Boston and here the latest research and 
technologies in the area of RNAi and other related oligonucleotides.   
The conference will highlight various topics such as miRNA, siRNA, shRNA 
and other related RNAi/oligonucleotide target identification/validation, 
in vivo/in vitro, high content screening, microarrays, drug delivery, 
Q-PCR, etc.
