RNA: From Biology to Drug Discovery

December 5, 2019 | Jupiter, Florida

Basic understanding of RNA biology has accelerated recently as the role of RNAs in disease has become clearer. Approaches to designing effective and selective RNA-focused therapeutic strategies have followed, and are showing great promise, opening diseases once deemed “undruggable” to potential treatment strategies.

The objective of Professor Matthew Disney’s inaugural “RNA: From Biology to Drug Discovery” symposium is to provide an opportunity for Scripps Research’s graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty and neighboring scientists to hear and engage with world-class scientists in the field of RNA therapeutics.

The symposium will be held in the Rodney B. Fink Auditorium of the Jupiter, Florida campus located in Palm Beach County, and it will include a lunchtime poster session to which all symposium registrants are welcome to submit an abstract.

For further questions pertaining to this event, please contact Kathleen O’Brien at kobrien@scripps.edu or (561) 228-2240.
