Toronto RNA Enthusiasts' Day (TREnD) 2023


The eighth annual Toronto RNA Enthusiasts Day (TREnD) 2023 will encompass two days of RNA-related talks by trainees across multiple model genetic systems, taking place virtually on August 1st and in person in the Peter Gilgan Centre for Research and Learning (PGCRL) on August 2nd.

There is an abundance of outstanding RNA research across a broad variety of disciplines in the Greater Toronto Area, but there is also a need to increase communication to: share ideas and state-of the-art technologies, build cross-disciplinary collaborations, and encompass a greater number of scientists in our scientific network. Our symposium, TREnD2023, is a student-led and trainee-focused event that will bring together researchers of every level to share their research and scientific approaches.

We hope to provide an inspiring and lively day of RNA-related discussion across multiple model genetic systems and be an outstanding networking and scientific tool for our community. In particular, we aim to bring together a diverse group of scientists focused on classical genetics and novel high-throughput genomic approaches and spark exciting new collaborations.
