LRD 2022


Dear Friends and Colleagues –

Recent advances in nucleic acid and drug delivery technologies are redefining the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries on a global scale, enabling personalized medicines, new treatments for rare and undefeated disease and the promise of less expensive treatments for diseases in under-developed countries.

On behalf of Liposome Research Days (LRD) 2022 we are pleased to invite all interested parties to our meeting Catalyzing the Nanomedicine Revolution, June 12-15, 2022 at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, Canada.

Leading international experts will deliver overview lectures that provide a global perspective, and will be available to network with fellow experts, academics and trainees. Researchers and trainees from academia and industry will present the latest research on key topics such as vaccines, gene therapy, gene editing, chemotherapy, and lipid and membrane biophysics.

The conference will take place on the beautiful UBC Campus in Vancouver and promises to be one of the most important nanomedicine conferences of the year.

We look forward to welcoming you to Vancouver!
