New RNA therapeutics

Opening hours / Beginning:

12:00 pm

24 June 2022

Workshop led by Prof. Dr. Olivia Merkel (CAS Young Center/LMU) and Prof. Dr. Thomas Carell (LMU)

The Corona pandemic has initiated a new phase in the field of vaccine development with the generation of RNA-based vaccines. But not only there: therapeutics developed on the basis of nucleic acids will play an increasingly important role in drug development or therapy in the coming years and change medicine. For untreatable or poorly treatable diseases, the new class of substances will show breakthrough treatment successes. This workshop brings together researchers to discuss the current state of development in the different research branches of nucleic acid-based therapeutics and to explore new approaches.

Keynote Lecture on 24th June 2022, 12:00 with Dr. Heinrich Haas

Registration is required for participation. You can find more information on the website of the Center for Advanced Studies or via mail.

The Center for Advanced Studies at LMU provides a forum for scientific exchange and discussion that bridges the divide between the established disciplines. Its activities are designed to promote all forms of collaborative research and to stimulate interdisciplinary communication within the University. In addition, it facilitates the integration of visiting scholars and scientists into the academic life of the University.
