Industry’s Largest & Most Renowned Event to Accelerate Your Therapeutics to Market: Leading Strategies for Expediting R&D and Improving CMC Efficiency

Unparalleled access to new data & case studies from globally recognized speakers across the entire spectrum from discovery, preclinical, clinical development through CMC and commercialization of therapeutics and vaccines for oligos, peptides, mRNA and genome editing products.

Announcing TIDES as a Hybrid Event for 2021

To best meet the needs of both traveling and stay-at-home audiences, TIDES USA 2021 will be a HYBRID event, combining a live experience at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center and digital experiences that showcase all of the content from the live event with additional keynotes, panel discussions and meeting scheduling to be fully inclusive to those unable to attend in person.

Our commitment to your health & safety are a priority so all our events are run according to official government and local authority guidance in the first instance, as well as any venue or location-specific regulations. In addition, all events follow the ten Informa AllSecure priority commitments [Details].


Cross-fertilize Ideas and Best Practices with Industry Experts Across Multiple Discipline Areas.

The TIDES USA program features 4 concurrent tracks covering the following 6 scientific themes including in-depth development strategies, trends, and technologies across the entire spectrum of oligonucleotides, peptides, mRNA, and genome editing. Your registration provides access to the presentations across all 4 tracks, allowing you to create your own customized agenda.

Oligonucleotide Chemistry, Manufacturing & Controls

Comprehensive CMC, analytical, manufacturing and regulatory strategies for both drug substance and drug product to accelerate oligonucleotide product development.

Oligonucleotide Discovery, Preclinical and Clinical

Design oligonucleotides with better drug-like properties to accelerate your products to the clinic and to market. The latest preclinical and clinical updates to benchmark your research and improve your clinical efforts.

Peptide Chemistry, Manufacturing & Controls

Improve process efficiencies and overcome challenges in process development, CMC and manufacturing. Understand regulatory expectations, new technologies and alternative approaches for emerging complex molecules.

Peptide Discovery, Preclinical and Clinical

Explore new frontiers in peptide synthesis, discovery, design and engineering to improve targeting, delivery and drug-like properties. Case studies on the latest preclinical and clinical successes of peptides and peptide-like scaffolds and structures.

mRNA Therapeutics/Vaccines & Genome Editing

Hear updates on discovery strategies, clinical progress and CMC approaches for mRNA therapeutics and vaccines from industry-leading companies, and learn about state-of-the-art technologies for genome editing applications and hear about progress in genome editing delivery

Drug Delivery Innovations

Looking for Additional Training Opportunities?

Join us at one of our upcoming virtual TIDES training courses.

Informa training courses provide in-depth teaching and discussion about highly technical and scientific topics relevant to the TIDES community that can not be covered at a conference. With 6+ hours of dedicated instruction in a classroom-like (teacher/student) environment, a training course will offer you interactive opportunities with the instructor and fellow attendees so you can get your most pressing questions answered in a much more individualized setting.

Introduction to Analytical Control Strategies for Therapeutic Oligonucleotides from Early Development to Registration

September 14-16 (Both Virtual)
Learn how to develop an evolving control strategy for your drug substance — from early development to registration. The course will also discuss the issues and risks that can be developed, addressed and mitigated during development

Introduction to Oligonucleotide Conjugate Strategies

October 26-28 (Virtual)
Understand how to best design oligonucleotide conjugates — from simple starting building blocks to the full oligonucleotide conjugate. With full consideration of the biological behavior of both the finished molecule and all of its individual components.

The yearly TIDES conferences are among the most important events within peptide and oligonucleotide discovery and development and it has always been among my high priority to be able to join them. I am thus delighted to learn that Informa Connect will deliver TIDES USA Boston 2020 in a virtual format, and I am convinced that a digital meeting will be extremely appreciated in order to continue the important global communication among the scientific communities during these tough times.
