3rd Annual RNA-Targeted Drug Discovery Conference
When: Dec. 8th, 2020 to Dec. 10th, 2020
Anima Biotech has been invited to present and participate in multiple sessions during the 3rd Annual RNA-Targeted Drug Discovery Conference, between Dec. 8-10, 2020. Yochi Slonim, Co-founder and CEO of Anima Biotech, will be giving a presentation, titled, “Translation Control Therapeutics: Discovery of Selective mRNA Translation Modulators,” and will also serve on an expert panel, titled, “From Theory to Reality: How to Target RNA Biology with Small Molecule Approaches.” Iris Alroy, VP of R&D, will also participate in an expert Q&A session.
Historically, the development of highly selective, small molecules targeting RNA biology has often been considered an insurmountable challenge. During the RNA-Targeted Drug Discovery Summit, experts will have an opportunity to promote recent progress and scientific breakthroughs in understanding the fundamental biology and function of RNA, which may ultimately lead to the development of more highly selective drugs for a variety of diseases.

Anima Biotech has been invited to present and participate on an expert panel during the Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 2nd Annual RNA as a Drug Target Conference, between Sep. 16-17, 2020. Yochi Slonim, Co-founder and CEO of Anima Biotech, will be giving a presentation during the RNA as a Drug Target session, titled, “Translation Control Therapeutics: Discovery of Selective mRNA Translation Modulators, on Thursday, Sep. 17 at 10:15 a.m. ET. As part of the same session, Dr. Iris Alroy, VP of R&D, will participate on an expert wrap-up panel discussion on Thursday, Sep. 17 at 11:35 a.m. ET.
In the past year, the idea of targeting RNA directly with either a small molecule-like drug or with oligonucleotides has gone from an interesting idea to a viable business plan. During the 2nd Annual RNA as a Drug Target Conference, part of the Discovery on Target, attendees will discuss not only the identification of specific and potent novel binders of RNA, but also the unique challenges that come with a novel drug target class.
Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Inaugural RNA as a Small Molecule Target Symposium
When: Aug. 28th, 2020
Anima Biotech has been invited to give an overview of its Translation Control Therapeutics platform at the Inaugural RNA as a Small Molecule Target Symposium. Co-founder and CEO, Yochi Slonim and vice president of research and development Dr. Iris Alroy will jointly present a talk titled “Translation Control Therapeutics: Discovery of Selective mRNA Translation Modulators,” on Friday, Aug. 28 at 3 p.m. ET.
RNA molecules are crucial for delivering cellular information and genetic regulation, but until recently, the drug discovery world has emphasized protein drug targets. Our lack of knowledge in RNA biology prevented us from exploring possibilities of RNA drug targets, but with recent advances in technologies, such as sequencing, new therapeutic strategies are being explored. The Inaugural RNA as a Small Molecule Target symposium, part of Drug Discovery Chemistry, will discuss methods and tools to identify specific, potent, novel, small molecule binders of RNA.
