7.10.19, RNA Lecture Series on 11 October: Markus Hafner (9:15 am), Astrid Haase (11:15 am)

Our RNA Lecture Series for the winter semester 2019/2020 is starting this Friday with lectures by these two successful RNA scientists:

11. October 2019:

09:15 – 10:45  Markus Hafner (NIH NIAMS):

Integrative analysis of RNA binding protein targets and function

11:15 – 12:45  Astrid Haase (NIH NIDDK):

A small RNA perspective on genome integrity

Venue: IMP Lecture Hall

About the RNA Lecture Series – a format of talks always well received, especially by the students:
Two invited RNA experts per date present their research topics comprehensively in two consecutive 90-minute-lectures in the morning, having enough time for thorough introductions to their fields and sharing their “hottest research”, describing how they attacked and solved open scientific questions. Lunch with the guest speakers and individual meetings in the afternoon provide plenty of opportunity for informal interactions with these internationally renowned scientists.

Next RNA Lectures are being planned for a Friday each in November, December and January, tba. Students receive 2 credits for attending 80% of the lectures.
