RNA Structure Cluster

The mission of the RNA Structure and Function Cluster is to promote interactions between a diverse group of University of Rochester scientists interested in the structure and biological functions of ribonucleic acid (RNA) molecules. The group includes undergraduates, graduate students (both PhD and MD), postdoctoral fellows, and PhD and MD faculty members from the River and Medical School campuses. The cluster's general activities include: (1) having monthly meetings to bring together the members of various research groups in a forum that allows the informal presentation and discussion of research, and (2) inviting world-renowned scientists from other universities and institutions to present their work and to meet with our cluster members.
