RNA Collaborative Seminar Series

RNA seminar series logo

The RNA Collaborative seminar series consists of a number of RNA research centers worldwide to provide online seminars during and beyond the COVID-19 institutional shutdowns. The RNA Collaborative aims to cross-promote RNA research to strengthen and connect the RNA scientific community.

Scientists are welcome to present RNA-related research spanning from foundational discoveries to potential therapeutic applications. Host centers can choose to present one hour-long seminar, two 30-minute seminars, four poster sessions with introductory lightning talks, or a combination of talks and poster sessions.

Seminars are held virtually every other Wednesday, at either 10 am EST, 4 pm EST, or host chooses, and are recorded and made freely available for viewing on the RNA Collaborative YouTube Channel.

 

These seminars are sponsored by the RNA Society and are organized by the following international RNA Centers (24 current members and growing):

Alberta RNA Research and Training Institute (ARRTI)Cambridge RNA ClubEuropean Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL)Groupe de Recherche RNA (GDR)Harvard Medical School Initiative for RNA Medicine (HMS)Helmholtz Institute for RNA-based Infection ResearchInstitute of Molecular Biology (IMB)MD Anderson Center for RNA Interference and Non-Coding RNAsNCI RNA Biology InitiativeNUS-CSI Singapore RNA Biology CenterPenn RNA Group, University of PennsylvaniaRiboClub SherbrookeRNA initiative at the Italian Institute of Technology (iRNA@IIT)RNA MaxiGroup, University of Wisconsin-Madison; Shanghai RNA Club; The Bay Area RNA Club (BARC)The RNA Institute, University at AlbanyUCSC Center for Molecular Biology of RNAUMass Medical School, RNA Therapeutics InstituteUniversity of Michigan Center for RNA BiomedicineUNC RNA Research GroupUniversity of Rochester Center for RNA BiologyUniversity of Science and Technology of China RNA InstituteYale Center for RNA Science and Medicine
