Conference/Event Schedule

The industry for RNAi-, pharmacogenomics- and forensics-related conferences and meetings has accelerated in the past year, as interest in these emerging technologies has increased among executives and researchers.

There are many events that focus on the research and development sector of the industry and, consequently, offer value for clinical and laboratory staff, as well as management personnel.

The following schedule consists of events that exclusively address RNAi, pharmacogenomics and forensics, as well as affairs that address related genomics topics. You may use the appropriate contact information to learn more about individual subtopics for events that do not mention RNAi, pharmacogenomics or forensics in the conference title, or to verify dates that may be subject to change.

Updated versions for any of the Fall 2005 events that may have already occurred while this publication was in production may, by now, have scheduled dates for next year. Use the appropriate contact information for scheduling update details.
