We are pleased to host the eleventh Cold Spring Harbor meeting on Eukaryotic mRNA Processing, which will begin at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, August 22 and run through lunch on Saturday, August 26, 2017. The meeting will focus on the mechanisms and regulation of mRNA splicing, polyadenylation, turnover, localization and RNA interference. It will include all aspects mRNA transport, processing and control, including ncRNA function, regulation of viral RNAs and disease implication of mRNA processing. The meeting is intended to provide a format for the exchange of ideas and information, to discuss the latest research findings and technical advances, and to facilitate interaction amongst groups active in diverse systems.

Please bring this notice to the attention of any of your colleagues who may be interested in participating in the meeting.

All registrations and abstracts must be submitted by the abstract deadline, June 6, 2017. Late registration may be accepted after the abstract deadline if the meeting is not oversubscribed. In the event of over-subscription, every effort will be made to ensure that all groups who wish to participate will be represented. Status (talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web site as soon as decisions have been made by the organizers.

We are eager to have as many young people as possible attend since they are likely to benefit most from this meeting. We have applied for funds from government and industry to partially support graduate students and postdocs. Apply in writing to Maureen Morrow stating need for financial support -

We look forward to seeing you at Cold Spring Harbor in August..
