Uruguayan RNA Clubsponsored by the RNA Salon Program of the RNA Society
Welcome!Click here to learn about us and what we do
We are a group of scientists from different Uruguayan academic institutions. Our scientific interests are wide but related somehow to the study of RNA and its biology. As part of the RNA Salon Program sponsored by the RNA Society and Lexogen, we are organizing several academic meetings per year. Our goal is to develop a local community of RNA-centered scientists to foster our research based on a mutually-supportive and friendly environment, where science can be discussed openly and constructively. You are welcomed to join!
