Drs. John LaCava and Erica Jacobs form the Rockefeller University have been selected by the RNA Society to host an RNA Society Salon in NYC during the 2018/2019 Salon calendar. The RNA Salons are designed to foster interaction and collaborations within the RNA scientific community and also to foster collaborations with the grater scientific community placing a particular emphasis on junior research scientists.
The topic will be “Ribonucleoproteins in retrotransposon and viral host-pathogen interactions.” 4-6 events are expected in 2019, with 2 hosted at The Rockefeller University and 2 at NYU Langone Health, Institute of Systems Genetics. Each event will constitute a mini-symposium with ~3-4 speakers and a round table discussion. The Salon is co-sponsored by the RNA Society, Lexogen GmbH, the NCDIR, and the ISG at NYU Langone Health.
