May 12, 2015 - Cellular, Molecular & Biochemical Sciences Training Program/Center for RNA Biology Annual Symposium 2015

The Annual CMBP/CRB Symposium brings together faculty trainers, graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and undergraduates representing a wide spectrum of the Life Sciences at Ohio State. In its fourth year of funding, the NIH CMB Training Program includes faculty and trainees from five related molecular life sciences graduate programs: Biophysics, Microbiology, Molecular Cellular and Developmental Biology, Molecular Genetics, and the Ohio State Biochemistry Program. The RNA group at OSU has a long history of interaction and active collaboration and is now recognized as an official university Center. Members of the Center for RNA Biology represent about a dozen Departments throughout OSU. There are natural synergies between these two groups and this symposium is an opportunity not only to showcase the research of CMB Training Program and RNA Center members but also to foster new interactions.
