Welcome to the

Oligonucleotide Therapeutics Society

The Oligonucleotide Therapeutics Society (OTS) is an open, nonprofit forum to foster research and development of oligonucleotide therapeutics.

The Founders’ vision was to bring together the expertise from different angles of oligonucleotide research to create synergies and to bring the field of oligonucleotides to its full therapeutic potential. A new era of oligonucleotide drugs was envisioned that would change the landscape of therapeutic modalities.

Oligonucleotide therapeutics are now being used to successfully treat diseases and have the potential for widespread application. Over 100 treatments are in development for common conditions, including cancer and Alzheimer’s disease, as well as rare diseases. Incredibly, oligonucleotide therapeutics have also been used to create an individualized treatment for one single person with a rare, fatal disease.

Director, Oligonucleotide Chemistry at Aligos Therapeutics

Chemical modification has proven essential for the therapeutic success of every single oligonucleotide modality. I work to develop novel chemical constructs to further improve the drug-like properties of ASO, siRNAs, etc, resulting in improved potency and/or safety. The ultimate goal is to see novel chemistries progressing into clinical development.


Membership is an opportunity to take advantage of an array of benefits that support the society’s mission to foster academia and industry-based research and development of oligonucleotide therapeutics, all at a reasonable rate!


The Oligonucleotide Therapeutics Society offers the opportunity for both members and non-members to apply for various awards to support the accomplishments of students, postdocs and young investigators.
