Outside Meetings

RNA Therapeutics: From Base Pairs to Bedsides Symposium

June 28-29, 2018

We live in an exciting time for the RNA research community. Throughout the latter half of the 20th century, we believed that

RNA’s primary role was to intermediate between DNA and protein. Over the last three decades, those long-held beliefs have

been shattered. From ncRNAs to RNAi, from CRISPR to circular RNAs, we have witnessed astonishing discoveries and equally

amazing translation of these breakthroughs to therapy. Come and join the discussion as we explore the era of RNA therapeutics.
