Cell Symposia: Functional RNAs
In partnership with Peking University and the Beijing Advanced Center of RNA Biology
October 20-22, 2024, Beijing, China

Latest News

RNAs are far more than mere intermediaries between DNA and protein and have many and diverse functions in cellular processes ranging from gene expression to the organization of biomolecular condensates. Nevertheless, our understanding of the complex, layered regulation of RNA continues to grow as we expand the interpretation and annotation of the epitranscriptome, define the identity and biophysical properties of RNA interactions, and identify new kinds of non-coding RNAs.

Join us in Beijing in 2024 for the opportunity to discuss the latest advances in RNA biology and applications from diverse perspectives and to hear about the most recent frontiers that the field is exploring. The symposium will be the place to reflect on the current basic and translational discoveries in the RNA world and will cover a broad range of topics including the function and processing of coding and non-coding RNAs, post-transcriptional regulation, new tools to dissect RNA functions, and the most up to date RNA-based clinical and technological applications. We hope to see you there!
