The purpose of the IS3NA is to gain by the information of honing individuals over a few controls to comprehend the effect of nucleic acids in a plenty of bleeding edge scientific inquiries running from the origin of life to the improvement of novel therapeutics. The International Society of Nucleosides, Nucleotides and Nucleic Acids developed in the new millennium as a brood of a consistent chain of fruitful biennial gatherings that were address as International Round Tables. The IS3NA endeavours to unite researchers in ranges as medicinal chemistry, diverse as chemistry, virology, chemical biology, synthetic biology, biochemistry, molecular and structural biology, pharmacology, pharmacy and medicine, all keen on working in the field of nucleic acid chemistry, nucleosides and nucleotides, encompassing the individual units, as well as the important biopolymers of life: RNA and DNA.
At the XIII International Roundtable on "Nucleosides, Nucleotides and their Biological Applications" (XIII IRT), scheduled on September 1998 in Montpellier, France, Dr. G. Gosselin (local administrators), Prof. J.-L. Imbach and Prof. L. B. Townsend known as two "fathers" of the IRTs gathered a group of fifteen renowned scientists in the area together. J.-L. Imbach and L. B. Townsend clarified their desire that the IRTs be proceeded, however that the control of the IRTs ought to wind up the duty of another Society framed for that reason.
As a result of this meeting, a small group of senior scientists, Gilles Gosselin, Dr. P. Dan Cook, Akira Matsuda, Piet Herdewijn, and Jack Secrist, chosen from among the participants and charged of the errand of establishing another Society. This new Society would not only endorse the operation of the next IRTs, but would also try to integrate people interested in each aspect of nucleosides, nucleotides, oligonucleotides and nucleic acids. This new Society would not just assume control over the operation of the following IRTs, however would likewise unite individuals inspired by every part of research relevant to nucleosides, nucleotides, oligonucleotides and nucleic acids.
When XIV IRT, held on September 2000 in San Francisco, by-laws had been created, and a designation board of trustees had polled scientists and researchers around the globe in setting a slate of contender to initiate the exercises of the new Society, termed as the International Society for Nucleosides, Nucleotides, and Nucleic Acids (IS3NA).Read More»
