The sixth annual Toronto RNA Enthusiasts Day (TREnD) 2021  will encompass two days of RNA-related talks by trainees across multiple model genetic systems, taking place from 1:00-5:00 pm EST on July 28th and 29th for FREE online.

There is an abundance of outstanding RNA research across a broad variety of disciplines in the Greater Toronto Area, but there is also a need to increase communication to: share ideas and state-of the-art technologies, build cross-disciplinary collaborations, and encompass a greater number of scientists in our scientific network. Our symposium, TREnD2021, is a student-led and trainee-focused event that will bring together researchers of every level to share their research and scientific approaches.

We hope to provide an inspiring and lively day of RNA-related discussion across multiple model genetic systems and be an outstanding networking and scientific tool for our community. In particular, we aim to bring together a diverse group of scientists focused on classical genetics and novel high-throughput genomic approaches and spark exciting new collaborations.

Help us spread the word by following us on social media with the #TREnD2021 #TREnDingOnline!
