    Recent advances in our understanding of the structure and function of RNA has opened up a wealth of putative therapeutic targets, greatly enriching drug discovery research programs. Nonetheless, the ability to selectively target RNA remains difficult, hampered by both the screening tools available and by our limited understanding of RNA-small molecule interactions.

    This symposium will explore leading edge research on RNA dynamics covering currently available assays, detection tools, and imaging platforms, while also providing an in-depth discussion of recent advances for studying RNA function, and ultimately targeting RNA for treating and curing disease.
