RNA biology has emerged as one of the most influential areas in modern biology and biomedicine. The CCR is home to a wide spectrum of work in RNA biology ranging from elucidating RNA biogenesis and structure, identifying functions for various classes of RNAs, establishing the role of RNA in disease, and exploring RNA-based and RNA-targeted therapies.

The goal of this fourth retreat hosted by the CCR Initiative in RNA Biology is to enhance interactions amongst PIs, fellows and staff working on RNA and to foster new collaborations and synergies amongst CCR laboratories interested in RNA biology. The workshop will feature our keynote speaker, Dr. Karla Neugebauer, Yale University and several talks selected from submitted abstracts. Fellows, staff scientists, trainees (including Leidos) are encouraged to submit an abstract for consideration.  We also hope to catalyze interactions between basic and clinician researchers at this workshop.

The retreat is open to all NIH staff.

ABSTRACTS: Must be submitted via the online abstract submission form by September 14, 2018. The online submission form can be found on the registration page.  Notification of acceptance for oral presentation will be sent by mid-October.
