What is RNA Leaders?

LSX hold life science events across the world. When the first mRNA vaccines hit the market in 2020 we listened to our community and created RNA Leaders.

RNA Leaders focuses on the scientific, clinical and commercial development of RNA therapeutics and vaccines. Our live events take place in Switzerland and Boston.

They bring together the most senior executives to deliver updates from across the full RNA landscape (RNAi, antisense technologies, small molecule targeting, mRNA and more).

Attendees all have access to our 1-2-1 partnering app enabling partnership and investment meetings to be booked throughout the entire 2 days.

Why RNA Leaders?

Why is RNA Leaders USA THE best & only RNA event you should be attending this Fall?

What makes this event different from other RNA events out there?

Well …

  • RNA Leaders USA sits in that sweet spot between a purely scientific and purely business event - other events might do one, we do both

  • RNA Leaders USA is highly targeted at only the most senior decision-makers from RNA Biotechs (C-suite) and Large Pharma (VP and above)

  • RNA Leaders USA has a highly sophisticated 1-2-1 partnering app. Unlike other events, as well as informal networking, you'll have the opportunity to use our partnering platform to set up formal meetings with target clients and partners - maximising your time and investment in the event.

  • RNA Leaders USA covers the whole ecosystem and has talks, discussions and attendees from all RNA disciplines, whilst other events only focus on one small part of the RNA universe. A great chance to learn from and meet those that you wouldn't at other events

  • RNA Leaders USA comes off the back of an extremely successful European event in March where we bought together 330+ of the world’s RNA Leaders. We've created an RNA community. We're a proven entity. This isn't our first rodeo!
