RNA goes viral

Welcome note

Dear Colleagues,

it is our great pleasure to invite you to the conference RNA goes viral, which will be held on 1.-2. July 2021 at the Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry, Polish Academy of Sciences in Poznan, Poland.

Today’s world is full of new unexpected challenges such as the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. To understand contemporary problem and develop an effective strategy for their solutions we require knowledge from various scientific fields and an interdisciplinary approach. Therefore, to fulfill these requirements of modern science, we distinguished three thematic sessions (for details please see below). Plenary lectures will be held by world-famous experts: Prof. Douglas H. Turner (University of Rochester, USA), Prof. Gang Chen (The Chinese University of Hong Kong, China), Prof. Luis Martinez-Sobrido (Texas Biomedical Reserch Institute, USA), Prof. Stefan Pöhlmann (German Primate Center – Leibniz Institute for Primate Research, Germany). Additionally,among the invited speakers there are leading representatives of the Polish scientific community: Prof. Marek Figlerowicz (Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry Polish Academy of Sciences), Prof. Krzysztof Pyrć (Jagiellonian University), Prof. Andrzej Mackiewicz (Poznan University of Medical Sciences), Prof. Hans Bluijssen (Adam Mickiewicz University) and Prof. Jakub Rybka (Center of Advanced Technologies).

The reason for our meeting also testifies to the aforementioned interdisciplinarity and its role in science. The ‘RNA goes viral’ conference is organized on the occasion of the 70th birthday of Prof. Ryszard Kierzek from the Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry Polish Academy of Sciences in Poznań. Honorary Jubilarian is an outstanding Polish scientist (author of 177 scientific publications cited 8255 times, Hirsch index equal to 48), whose research interests cover issues from the border of chemistry, physics and biology and mainly concern nucleic acids

We ensure that during our conference all participants will meet science at the highest international level which will inspire your future scientific work.
