NCI RNA Imaging and Intracellular Dynamics Workshop
Hosted by the NCI RNA Biology Initiative

Registration and Abstract Submission Now Open!

Date:                April 26, 2022
Location:         Virtual 

RNA biology has emerged as one of the most influential areas in modern biology and biomedicine. The NCI is home to a wide spectrum of work in RNA biology ranging from elucidating RNA biogenesis and structure, identifying functions for various classes of RNAs, establishing the role of RNA in disease, and exploring RNA-based and RNA-targeted therapies.

This workshop will focus on how basic steps in RNA metabolism are carried out and are integrated into a complex intracellular environment. It aims to bring together experts in the field to describe recent advances in methodologies used to understand subcellular RNA distribution, organization and function, discuss the impact they have had on current models and identify key areas of future development.
