The 2nd annual conference Bermuda Principles - Impact on Splicing is coming

The 2nd annual conference Bermuda Principles - Impact on Splicing (BPIS) will be held on February 21 - 25th, 2018. Eduardo Eyras, head of the Computational RNA Biology group of GRIB (UPF-IMIM) takes part in the organization of this event.

The inaugural BPIS Conference that took place in February 2017 was a great success, consolidating it as annual event on the scientific calendar. In 2018 this exciting conference will feature a distinguished Keynote Lecture by Professor Adrian Krainer, presentations by six keynote speakers representing a wealth of countries including Italy, Scotland, England and the USA, and a further array of speakers from the USA, Switzerland, South Africa and Australia. The conference topics include: Splicing mechanisms; RNA structure; RNA - protein interactions; Bioinformatics; Splicing and disease; Links to transcription; Therapeutics and translational applications.

Numerous international delegates will attend, including PhD students, postdoctoral scientists, and academic faculty, as well as biotech representatives and investors. The conference attendees will have the opportunity to participate in public engagement mini-lectures and hands-on activities about general science topics, delivered to local students, science teachers and healthcare practitioners.
