Abstracts are welcomed on all scientific topics related to the development of RNA and other oligonucleotide-based therapeutic approaches. They should contain only new and unpublished material and must be submitted electronically by the abstract deadline. Selection of material for oral and poster presentation will be made by the organizers and individual session chairs. 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 to attend since they are likely to benefit most from this meeting. We have applied for funds from industry to partially support graduate students and postdocs. Apply in writing to Maureen Morrow stating need for financial support - preference is given to those submitting abstracts.

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