The Toronto RNA Club is a trainee-led and -oriented monthly scientific forum that facilitates interactions within the RNA community of the greater Toronto area. Our monthly seminars bring together trainees from across Toronto RNA labs and universities and showcase research from external internationally renowned professors.

Our aim is to build and strengthen the local RNA community. Research is multi-faceted and requires both a breadth and depth of knowledge: communication between distinct experts is essential. The Toronto RNA Club is a forum for experts to meet, discuss and share ideas. We envision our meetings to be where Toronto’s RNA community coalesces and cultivates the next generation of RNA thought leaders.
