Science Shaping Our World (SHOW) is a monthly seminar and networking series
that highlights areas of life science research possessing significant application potential. Our mission is to bring together researchers, entrepreneurs, investors, technology and business professionals, in a setting where they can gain exposure and insight into the life science advancements changing our world.
Further, we seek to promote active inter and cross-disciplinary networking toward fostering the creation of opportunities for the development of these emerging technologies and their applications.
October’s SHOW will focus on the science and application of RNAi technology. Having captured the minds and imaginations of many, with the recent Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, RNAi has spawned a new area of applications and therapeutics. RNAi is currently poised to transform not only our understanding of the human body but open new horizons in the treatment of many debilitating disease states.
As co-founders of a company focused on RNAi therapeutics, our speakers Dr. Catherine Pachuk, Director of Delivery Biology at the Pfizer Research Technology Center and Dr. Satish Chandran, Chief Technology Officer at Pfizer BBC will lead our discussion focusing on the questions related to RNAi and its future applications.
Please join us for an evening of science, business, and networking. Event registration is free and begins at 5:30 PM at WorkBar Boston, Protected content Street – Second Floor (please RSVP with your name and a valid e-mail prior to the event).
