Join the seminar on zoom here.
Welcome to the Sahlgrenska Academy Science Seminars, a series of seminars on Thursdays at 15-16. The seminars are, during early Autumn 2021, conducted through Zoom Meetings until the end of October. Thereafter they will be conducted both physical in Arvid Carlsson lecture hall at Academicum and online through zoom.
The seminars are open to anyone interested in taking part of scientific breakthroughs and projects in the medicine and health science field. Scientists, students and other staff from GU, VGR and other organisations with the common interest of medicine and health science, welcome!
Speaker: Shalini Andersson, AstraZeneca
Topic: RNA therapeutics enable expansion of disease target space
In recent years, techniques have been developed to treat diseases with what are known as oligonucleotide drugs, based on short DNA or RNA molecules. The OligoNova Hub will be a national technology platform in this subject area funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, SciLifeLab and the University of Gothenburg:
Other important facilitators include AstraZeneca in Mölndal, which has unique knowhow and guidance. OligoNova Hub will be connected with a large network for research and development of oligonucleotide drugs.
Thursdays Sahlgrenska Academy Science Seminar speaker, Shalinia Andersson, Ph.D., has more than 20 years of research experience in the Pharmaceutical industry mainly from discovery and development of small molecules therapeutics and during the last 5 years also from RNA based therapeutics. She has been instrumental in catalysing the development of the OligoNova Hub from the AstraZenica side and will talk to us about her experience in Oligonucleotide therapeutics.
Host: Ruth Palmer
