The RNA Institute’s 6th Annual RNA Symposium is entitled The Language of RNA in Disease and Development. It brings together scientific experts, students and industry professionals who conduct basic, applied and translational research in RNA. This year’s meeting highlights multidisciplinary work being done in and around RNA science.
The RNA Symposium provides a forum for faculty, students and industry representatives to present their findings and network with colleagues. It has attracted Nobel Laureates, as well as National Academy Members, distinguished Howard Hughes Medical Institute Principal Investigators, renowned university professors, industry scientists and medical doctors, among others from around the world.
The 2019 Symposium includes talks from Craig Mello, Eliezer Calo, Matt Disney, Wendy Gilbert, Eric Kool, Cara Pager, Gisela Storz, Charles Thornton, and Elçin Ünal, as well as presentations by faculty, postdocs, and students selected from submitted abstracts. Please join us for this exciting event!
