RNA Network Australasia

RNA_Network

 

 

 

 

The RNA Network of Australasia was founded in 2007 by Professor Thomas Preiss, who recognised the need to provide a forum for scientists doing RNA-related research within Australia and New Zealand.  The aim was to boost the profile of RNA research,  support students and early career scientists with local meetings and activities, and form a network of scientists with this common interest. 

Each year we support an award for an RNA-based presentation at the annual COMBIO conference of the Australian Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, as well as a number of State-based events. In 2014 we held the inaugural Joint Australia Japan RNA Meeting in Sydney, which was a culmination of 18 months organising and was a fantastic success. We hope this will be the first of many such events.

Drop me an email any time – I welcome any thoughts or suggestions you might have for strategies to boost RNA research!
