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.
Please contact dk-rna.office@mfpl.ac.at if you’d like to meet the speakers.
