iRNA – COSI ’23

ISMB 2023 – Lyon, France

We are excited to get back to in person iRNA COSI meeting as part of ISMB 2022! ISMB 2022 will offer both in-person and virtual attendance

iRNA will run for two days July 26-27th, while the entire ISMB meeting runs July 23-27th (see general schedule here).

Travel support and poster winner prize sponsored by the RNA Society

The integrative RNA biology (iRNA) meeting at ISMB brings together computational and experimental experts that drive new advances in RNA biology and overcome the computational challenges involved.

iRNA gives an excellent opportunity for both PI and trainees to network with other RNA CompBio researchers and to present their work as a talk and/or poster.

Abstract deadline for poster or talks: April 20, 11:59 PM ET
(Talk and/or Poster Acceptance Notifications: Thursday, May 11, 2023)
Late abstract deadline (posters only):  April 24, 2023
(Late Posters Acceptance Notifications:  Thursday, May 18, 2023)

Irmtraud Meyer

Max-Delbrück-Center (MDC) Berlin

Prof. Meyer’s group is focused on discovering new classes of trans RNA-RNA interactions, investigating their functional roles, and identify targets for therapeutic applications that prevent or enable particular trans RNA-RNA interactions. Specific areas of research include regulation of gene expression via trans RNA-RNA interactions, co-transcriptional RNA structure formation, and regulation of gene expression via RNA structure formation.

Maayan Salton

Hebrew University

Dr. Salton’s lab uses molecular biology techniques and high-throughput sequencing to reveal the layers of pre-mRNA splicing regulation in health and disease. A specific focus for the lab is on the interplay between chromatin and the spliceosome to alter alternative splicing patterns.

Julien Gagneur

Technical University of Munich

Professor Gagneur’s research focuses on delineating the genetic basis of gene regulation and its implication in diseases. To this end, he is developing statistical and machine learning algorithms and works with experimentalists to design novel experimental approaches. Together with Dr. Holger Prokisch (TUM School of Medicine), his group is also developing strategies to pinpoint the cause of genetic disorders by integrating data from genetics and “multiomics” disciplines such as transcriptomics and proteomics.

Prof. Hagen Tilgner

Weill Cornell Medical School, NYC

Prof. Tilgner’s lab studies the variations of mRNA isoforms as these related to developmental and neurodegenerative disorders using a combination of high-throughput assays they develop in the lab, coupled with computational modeling and analysis. Much of the technology development is focused on long-reads RNA sequencing at single cell resolution.
