No one can stay indifferent to the current events affecting Ukraine – and Europe as a whole.

Global science community has been condemning Russian invasion of Ukraine and the chorus of condemnation includes the voices of thousands of scientists in Russia, who confess themselves appalled by their government’s actions.

Either way, everyone is doing their best to support this nation’s oppressed citizens. In that sense, the Oligonucleotide Therapeutics Society (OTS) joins other scientific organizations in seeking to help Ukrainian scientists.

Specifically, OTS is inviting Ukrainian students, scientists, and industry professionals with interests in the field of nucleic acids and oligonucleotide therapeutics to post their contact information and CVs on the OTS website. They are also asking their members to spread the word about this initiative to our Ukrainian colleagues.

CVs may be emailed to

In the meantime, we join OTS in appealing our members to let us know of other ways that our community can offer assistance.
