Welcome to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Symposium RNA Biology 2017.
RNA biology has emerged as one of the most influential areas in modern biology and biomedicine. The discovery of numerous new classes of RNAs and their function in a wide spectrum of biological processes has revolutionized molecular biology and has profound implications for clinical sciences. Key areas of current research include the elucidation of RNA biogenesis and structure, the identification of functions for various classes of RNAs, establishing the role of RNA in disease, and the exploration of RNA-based- and RNA-targeted therapies.
Organized by the CCR Initiative in RNA Biology, this symposium will bring together internationally renowned experts in the field of RNA Biology, with the focus on:
The symposium offers you an opportunity to learn more about the current status of RNA biology in development and disease, share your research, network with leading figures in the field and to discuss the use and implications of these advances for clinical applications.
We hope to see you at RNA Biology 2017.
