We are pleased to announce the Cold Spring Harbor Asia Strategic Summit: Decoding RNA for Biomedicine and Biotechnology will be held in Suzhou, CHINA, located approximately 60 miles west of Shanghai. 

Around 30 scientists from all over the world will be invited to discuss current development and challenges in RNA structure, RNA biology, RNA drug discovery, and RNA biotechnology. The Strategic Summit is planned to last for two full days. We wish to encourage discussions and exchange of ideas between fields and to promote new scientific collaborations. More importantly, we wish to discuss the possibility of launching an international collaborative project, ‘The Structural Genomics for RNA (tentative title)’ to break through the bottleneck in RNA research.
