Modified Sugars to Stabilise Nucleic Acid Duplexes for Therapeutic Applications

In the second instalment in our highly anticipated webinar series, we feature 2 highly respected academics discussing topics surrounding modified sugars. Tom Brown (Professor of Nucleic Acid Chemistry, Oxford University) and Jon Watts (Associate Professor in Chemical Biology, Southampton University).

Looking at modified sugars to stabilise nucleic acid duplexes for therapeutic applications.

Main areas of discussion include:

  • Describing the evolution of sugar modifications
  • Looking at ways to improve the potency, specifity, pharmacokinetics of oligonucleotide drugs
  • Increasing diversity of recognised cellular targets for antisense Oligonucleotides
