RNA Therapeutics: From Base Pairs to Bedsides Symposium

28 June 2018 08:00 - 29 June 2018 18:00, Worcester, United States

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.
