Direct Research units

Stras-RNA Salon

The STRAS-RNA Salon is a program supported by the RNA society that gathers a strong community of scientists working on RNA Biology in Strasbourg (France) including 4 different research units (RNA, M3I, IBMP and GMGM) located on the University central campus. Numerous organisms are studied : bacteria, viruses, protozoans, insects, plants, mammals, and diverse aspects of the RNA world are approached including RNA in gene regulation, epitranscriptomic and RNA modifications, RNA in pathogenicity and diseases, RNA in translation, RNA in cell-to-cell communication.

The program includes three types of activities for a total of five events during the year:

  • external seminars from outstanding high-profile external speakers,
  • a one-day RNA club meeting focusing on specific RNA topics including methodological, interdisciplinary and “hot-spot” aspects,
  • a one-day workshop fully organized by young researchers (meeting, training, video sketches…).

These STRAS-RNA activities are aimed:

  • to facilitate collaborations between researchers working in RNA biology on various models and with diverse methodologies ,
  • to foster discussions on the future of RNA biology,
  • to introduce novel on-site technological platforms,
  • to contribute to the international visibility of the research units through the invitation of renowned scientists,
  • to promote, educate, and encourage undergraduate and graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in RNA research, and help them in the development of their careers.

Organised by the Stras-RNA salon, the second edition of the RNA workshop brought together more than 120 RNA scientists around the theme of RiboNucleoProtein Complexes. Congratulations to Matthieu Bruggemann (IBMP) who received the RNA Society Award for Best PhD and post-doc presentation and to Mickaele Hemono (IBMP) for the Best Poster presentation Award.
