The annual SIBBM Seminar is one of the most successful regularly held Italian scientific events, which aims at bringing together top international and national speakers at the leading-edge of the most innovative molecular biology topics, in close contact with the junior participants.
This 17th Seminar will cover a topic of great current interest: the biology, properties, modes of action and applications of RNA, from its roles in the control of development and cell differentiation to its involvement in disease. And naturally, with a focus on the vibrant RNA Therapeutics and RNA-based Diagnostics fields.
The discovery of a large number of RNA molecules not coding for any protein has provided a new and important perspective on the role of RNA in the regulation of gene expression and in the evolution of complex organisms. It is common understanding that there are still many unexplored and unknown functions of non-coding RNAs. The SIBBM Seminar 2022 will focus on the most important and recent advances in the RNA field, both basic and applied.
Active participation from young scientists is very welcome and will be fostered, selecting many abstracts for talks and providing a reduced fee for registration of junior participants.
Moreover, several prizes will be awarded, including the new SIBBM Riccardo Cortese prize for the best selected talk, the "Francesca Martini" prize from NAnA Onlus for the best poster on cancer research, and several poster prizes.
We are also pleased to announce that a limited number of Childcare Grants will be provided by SIBBM for this conference to offset childcare costs incurred by participants or speakers when participating in this event.
We hope you enjoy the programme and that you will participate in large numbers!
