Panel discussion on COVID-19: How has the RNA industry adapted to beat the pandemic

RNA therapeutics is a rapidly expanding industry with increasingly growing potential for immunotherapy personalised medicines, and treatment of genetic, infectious and chronic diseases. This is reflected with the value of the global antisense & RNA therapeutics market expected to reach USD 1.81 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 7.5%.

Furthermore, the recent advances of AI technology for RNA drug discovery, as well as new strides in the delivery of messenger RNA transcribed in vitro, have triggered a major expansion of the RNA-therapeutics field.
