The third annual Toronto RNA Enthusiasts Day (TREnD) will take place on July 31st, 2018 at the SickKids Peter Gilgan Centre for Research and Learning (686 Bay St, Toronto, ON M5G 0A4).

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, TREnD2018, is a student-led and trainee-focused event that will bring together researchers of every level to share their research and scientific approaches.

We are proud to be a part of the Genetics Society of America’s Early Career Scientists Symposium Program.

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 #TREnDRNA2018!
