RNA Science and Its Applications
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 2021 RNA Institute Mini Symposium was a great success with over 400 registrants from around the world.
We want to congratulate all the Award winners and trainee speakers for a truly enjoyable and interesting symposium.
