1st International Symposium on Stress-associated RNA Granules in Human Disease and Viral Infection

Viruses. 2014 Sep 23;6(9):3500-13. doi: 10.3390/v6093500.


In recent years, important linkages have been made between RNA granules and human disease processes. On June 8-10 of this year, we hosted a new symposium, dubbed the 1st International Symposium on Stress-Associated RNA Granules in Human Disease and Viral Infection. This symposium brought together experts from diverse research disciplines ranging from cancer and neuroscience to infectious disease. This report summarizes speaker presentations and highlights current challenges in the field.
