Past Symposia

The Center for RNA Biomedicine symposia bring together national leaders of the scientific, medical and engineering communities working on recent advances of our understanding of RNA.

Our annual symposia provide a means of exchanging new ideas across disciplines, spurring new collaborations nationwide, while supporting a rapidly growing RNA community at the University of Michigan. It is an opportunity to engage with each other and the scientific community on campus and beyond on a range of topics involving RNA.

We host approximately 200–300 participants from across the country. The symposia are open to University of Michigan clinicians and research scientists, as well as other primary care practitioners and public health scholars interested in the most recent discoveries regarding the role of RNA in health and disease. We welcome funding decision makers and potential donors interested in supporting RNA research at Michigan.
