6th Annual Meeting on RNA

Danish RNA Society's 6th Annual Meeting on RNA: From basic research to industrial applications will this year be held as an online event. The event will still include both lectures and poster sessions to maximise the interaction between the participants.


Opened July 8, 2021 via our sponsored page at Nemtilmeld. Here you will be able to pay by credit card or have an EAN-invoice made out for your institution.

Targeting RNA 2019 - Nordics

The Danish RNA Society organises in collaboration with Novo Seeds, BioInnovation Institute and NovoNordisk Fonden the Targeting RNA 2019 event for Nordic researchers.

Targeting RNA has gathered lots of attention recently both through big pharma successes and high profile start-ups being created. This event aims to:

  • Bring together entrepreneurial scientists in the RNA space
  • Enable and stimulate more commercialization
  • Identify promising RNA projects
