Austrian-Swiss RNA Retreat

The joint meeting of the Swiss NCCR RNA & Disease and the Vienna RNA Biology Network will be held at Fuschlsee, Austria, from January 30th – February 3rd 2019 and aims at stimulating scientific exchange and promoting collaborations between established and junior scientists from the Vienna and Swiss RNA communities. The meeting will cover a broad spectrum of topics related to RNA biology including RNA structure & folding, RNA Translation, Transcription, Bioinformatics, Regulatory RNAs, non-coding RNAs, RNA processing, RNA surveillance, RNA transport as well as Epigenetics & Gene expression. The format of the meeting will provide young scientists the opportunity to present their research to an audience of peers and established principal investigators in their field. The meeting program, size, and location will provide plenty of opportunities for networking and discussions.

Registration is open to NCCR RNA & Disease and Vienna RNA Biology Network lab members who received an invitation by the organizers.

The funds from the RNA Society are used to support the travel of PhD students.
