The Oligo Meeting
The highly regarded annual OTS meeting draws experts from all over the world for cross-disciplinary exchange spanning expertise in chemistry and delivery, to biology, immunology and clinical medicine. It is the intense scientific exchange between attendees during our annual meetings that sets the stage for groundbreaking new ideas.

I had always thought that I would pursue a career in academic medicine, but in the Fall of 1995, I was visiting my parents who had moved to Iowa City (my father was a radiologist who ended his career by leaving private practice and taking a position as a Professor at the University of Iowa, moved to Iowa City, and became a physician/teacher).
What is Oligo Therapeutics?
Therapeutic oligonucleotides include a wide spectrum of molecules with different chemistries and functional properties such as antisense, RNA interference, immunorecognition and aptamer binding.

Official Journal of the Society
Nucleic Acid Therapeutics is the leading journal in its field focusing on cutting-edge basic research, therapeutic applications, and drug development using nucleic acids or related compounds to alter gene expression. The Journal examines many new approaches for using nucleic acids as therapeutic agents or in modifying nucleic acids for therapeutic purposes including: oligonucleotides, gene modification, aptamers, RNA nanoparticles, and ribozymes.
Nucleic Acid Therapeutics coverage includes:
- RNAi: siRNAs, shRNAs, and miRNAs
- Antisense applications; nucleoside and nucleotide analogs and modifications
- Peptide nucleic acids
- DNA-modified gene therapy
- Nucleic acid-based nanoparticles
- Ethical, legal, and regulatory issues
Nucleic Acid Therapeutics is under the editorial leadership of Editor-in-Chief Bruce A. Sullenger, PhD,Duke Translational Research Institute, Duke University Medical Center; Executive Editor Graham C. Parker, PhD; and other leading investigators. View the entire editorial board.
Audience: Molecular biologists, biochemists, DNA and cell biologists, and biopharmaceutical researchers, among others.
Nucleic Acid Therapeutics is a rapid-publication Journal, with peer review averaging 25 days from submission to first decision, and online publication of the article within four weeks of acceptance.
