7th annual meeting on RNA

From Basic Research to Industrial Applications

The main event of the Danish RNA Society (rnasociety.dk) each year is the annual meeting. At the annual meeting researchers from academia and industry are coming together and getting updates on that is going on in the RNA-field internationally as well as in the Danish industry.

Here there will be ample possibilities for interactions, and students will also be given the possibility to present their research with poster presentations. From the poster abstracts submitted before Sep 21, 5 speakers have been selected for short talks at the meeting (selected candidates have been notified. 
All remaining submitted posters (new deadline - Sep 30) will be accepted to present during the poster session. Poster presenters will therefore not receive an additional confirmation email. Posters must be in (A0 portrait format).

Registration for membership will open again shortly after the Annual meeting.

Venue: Aarhus University, iNANO House, Gustav Wieds Vej 14, 8000 Aarhus
Date: Oct 11, 2022 from 10.30 am to 7 pm.
