RNA Biology Lecture Series

The aim of these lectures is to provide a comprehensive educational offering in the field of RNA Biology for MSc and PhD students. The NCCR RNA & Disease offers the unique chance to have lectures taught by leading experts in the field from five Swiss research institutions covering a wide range of aspects of RNA biology.

The lectures take place in the autumn semester and will alternate each year between the University of Bern and ETH Zurich.
