RNA Conferences


We hold three major RNA-focused conferences across Canada each year to unite researchers and share discoveries.


RiboClub is an annual gathering of leading RNA Researchers from around the world in an idyllic Quebec setting. Each year, a new theme is selected to guide the discussions and highlight particular types of research. High calibre scientific talks, posters, and EDI and professional development sessions make this a conference to not be missed.


RiboWest brings together Canadian RNA researchers each summer at one of four universities in western Canada. This conference provides a fantastic venue for trainees and PIs to network and share their latest research in a lovely locale, and hosts valuable learning sessions, such as EDI and professional development events.

Toronto RNA Enthusiasts' Day (TREnD)

TREnD is a one day symposium held in Toronto that is organized by trainees for trainees. The event features an array of learning and networking experiences including a keynote seminar from a world class researcher, dozens of talks and posters presented by trainees, career panels, and a lunch and learn session on topics like science communication.
