12–17 July 2020, Malahide, Ireland
The RNA Associated Mechanisms Conference: In Immunity and Disease
This FASEB Science Research Conference (SRC) will be the first of its kind to bring together the rapidly evolving fields of immunology and RNA biology. Discovering and modulating the inner workings of the innate and adaptive arms of the immune system has been a long-term goal for basic and applied immunologists. In this conference we will discuss two of the newest and most exciting topics in the field, the role and regulation of RNA in immune system regulation.
This conference brings together an interdisciplinary group of academic and industry scientists who study and conduct research in various aspects of RNA biology related to immune system development, function, and immunotherapy.
The main themes of this meeting are: 1) The role of various noncoding RNA-associated mechanisms in immune system development and function; 2) Understanding epitranscriptome in immune system development and function; 3) New approaches using current knowledge about RNA biology and RNA modifications to treat various diseases.
Conference sessions will present the latest research and foster discussion on:
- Noncoding RNA in the immune system
- RNA modifications and epitranscriptomics
- RNA and immunotherapy
- RNA processing mechanisms in the immune system
- RNA-based immunotherapy
- RNA-associated immune system disorders
In addition to opening keynote lectures from Katherine Fitzgerald, PhD (University of Massachusetts) and Frederick Alt, PhD (Harvard University), this conference will feature 10 oral sessions, two poster sessions, and two career development sessions for trainees.
