Vienna, 6.4. - 8.4.2022

Microsymposium on RNA Biology

Invited established leaders in the field, postdocs and PhD students present their projects and results to a highly qualified, engaged and dynamic audience

The „Microsymposium on RNA Biology“ is an international conference that brings together young scientists, junior and senior group leaders, and company representatives from all over the world to present and discuss their latest findings in the exciting field of small RNAs and beyond. The Microsymposium was founded in 2005 and has established itself as the major small RNA meeting in Europe. It is organized by the four research institutions IMBAIMPGMI and the Max Perutz Labs as well as by the RNA community of the Vienna BioCenter

In all three eukaryotic kingdoms, small regulatory RNAs play a key role in the silencing of gene expression at the post-transcriptional and the transcriptional level. They have central functions in the repression of viruses and transposons and they play essential roles in coordinating organismal development, physiological processes and human diseases, such as cancer.

  • February 28th: Abstract submission to be considered for a talk from abstract (PhD Workshop or Postdoc talk)
  • March 25th: Final registration & deadline for poster presenters

The attendance is free of charge!

To strengthen the focus on the new generation of scientists, the Microsymposium invites—besides established leaders in the field— postdocs and PhD students (selected from submitted poster abstracts) as speakers. This allows the up-and-coming scientists to present their projects and results to a highly qualified, engaged and dynamic audience and is a major distinguishing factor from other conferences.
