The RNA Biology Centre (RBC) under CSI Singapore hosted its inaugural RNA Symposium on the 11 November 2015 at the Centre for Life Sciences (CeLS).
Boasting a lineup of distinguished international speakers, this full day symposium was a success with an overwhelming turnout of 160 participants. In addition, we are proud to have Professor Pier Paolo Pandolfi, Professor from Harvard Medical School and Director of Cancer Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, USA to deliver the keynote talk. A total of 11 high profile speakers gave intriguing talks related to all different aspects of RNA biology, including: ceRNA and non-coding RNA involvement in cancer, alternative splicing regulatory network in autism and metabolic enzymes functioning as RNA binding protein.
Some comments from our speakers about the symposium:
