You’re invited: Fifth annual RNA Symposium
RNA research shapes revolutionary scientific paths, from fundamental science discoveries in the labs to powerful biomedical applications for patients. The rapid rise of RNA-guided genome editing tools and mRNA-based vaccinations demonstrates the tremendous impact of such breakthroughs.
To take a deeper looking at these advancements, the U-M Center for RNA Biomedicine will host its fifth annual RNA Symposium later this month.
The event will take place virtually on March 25 and 26, from 11 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. each day.
Five keynote speakers and six data blitz presenters will give their takes on RNA biomedicine, from RNA processing to RNA structure and CRISPR tools.
The keynote speakers include:
- Tracy Johnson, University of California, Los Angeles
- Kevin Weeks, University of North Carolina
- Feng Zhang, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
- Brenda Bass, University of Utah
- Chris Lima, Sloan Kettering Institute
Six U-M junior scientists will also be invited to present in a “data Blitz” format.
