Event Overview

From hitting new therapeutic targets to developing new diagnostic methods, aptamers are bringing much-needed solutions to drug and diagnostic development. With existing technologies covering less than 30 percent of the human proteome, there is an unmet need for biomolecular recognition in the drug target space. Aptamers are single-stranded oligonucleotides that bind a wide range of proteins with high affinity and specificity, similar to antibodies. Because of their versatility, scientists are developing aptamers to perform a variety of functions, such as binding to drug targets and acting as point-of-care and wearable biosensors.

In this roundtable event brought to you by Aptamer Group, experts from academia, industry and healthcare will discuss the need for aptamers in drug and diagnostic development, highlighting the pros and cons of working with this technology and its approach to the market across therapeutic, diagnostic and bioprocessing sectors.
