6th Annual RNA Symposium
Towards our Future of RNA Therapeutics
We were thrilled to host last week’s 6th Annual RNA Symposium in-person as well as live broadcast. While we did not record, the MiSciWriters, a student organization dedicated to improving public understanding of science, blogged about the event. Read about our keynote talks:
- Jack Szostak, Harvard, The emergence of RNA from heterogeneous prebiotic chemistry
- Gigi Storz, NICHD, RNA-mediated regulation within protein-coding sequences
- Chris Burge, MIT, Impact of RNA-Binding Proteins on Human Genomic Variation
- Wendy Gilbert, Yale, Decoding the untranslated
- Michelle Hastings, Rosalind Franklin, Splice-Modulating Antisense Oligonucleotides for the Treatment of Disease
We are pleased to announce the publication of our second annual magazine and report, RNA Translated. This year’s issue focuses on RNA therapeutics research. It is, in a way, the continuation of RNA Translated, 2020, The Year of the RNA Virus. 18 U-M scientists and scholars present their research on three RNA therapeutics areas: mRNA vaccines, ASOs, and CRISPR. The second half of the magazine highlights the main activities of the Center for the July 2020–June 2021 period.
Special thanks to all our contributors!
Who we are, what we do, and why!
RNA Translated, “2020, the year of the RNA virus”
Our annual magazine and brief report is out!
RNA Translated‘s main focus is on “2020, the year of the RNA viruses,” with representative contributions from 10 RNA faculty members. We also feature our two Research Cores and broadly report on the Center’s activity with a few highlights. With this publication, we aim to showcase the outstanding achievements and deep impact of the scientific collaborations emerging from the U-M RNA research community.
Run into Grant Sprints!
Keeping grant writing exciting, innovative and successful.
By creating a space and time for innovative thinking, Grant Sprints support the concept, ideation, and writing process while delivering strong grant proposals. The U-M Center for RNA Biomedicine is now offering such facilitated sessions, free to its members.
