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.

• RNA Turnover and Quality Control
• Splicing Structures and Mechanisms
• RNA-Protein Interactions
• 3’ End Processing and Poly(A)
• Splicing Regulation
• Non-Coding RNAs
• Co-Transcriptional RNA Processing and RNA Modification
• Translation
• RNA Processing in Development and Disease

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

    All abstracts must be submitted by the abstract deadline. Late registrations 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. The 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. Please apply in writing via email to Maureen Morrow and state your financial needs; preference will be given to those who submit abstracts.
