Following the first (Halifax 2014) and second (Heidelberg 2017) Symposiums on Stress-Associated RNA Granules in Human Disease and Viral Infection, the third, RNA Granules 2020, will be May 24-26, 2020 in Vancouver at the Fletcher Challenge Canada Theatre of Simon Fraser University Harbour Centre Campus.
This symposium will bring together experts investigating RNA granules that impact different fields and that have been implicated in infectious diseases, neurological disorders and cancer. Oral and poster presentations will discuss the latest advances in cell biology, neurobiology, microbiology and physical chemistry that have revealed exciting insights into the molecular composition of distinct RNA granules, the mechanisms that regulate assembly of RNA granules and the contribution of RNA granules to disease and immunity.
Meeting Organizers: Neil Cashman, University of British Columbia, Eric Jan, University of British Columbia and Poul Sorensen – BC Cancer, University of British Columbia
Meeting Website: RNA Granules
