small non-coding rna forum

Welcome to the small-non-coding RNA forum at the Cancer Registry of Norway.  Our aim is to gather researchers interested in small noncoding RNAs in the Oslo area to seminars and discussions covering all aspects of noncoding RNA research.


Last update: 09.03.2018

We will invite you to informal meetings approximately 4 times a year. Each meeting will include 1-2 presentations followed by a discussion. A mailing list has been created with the purpose of sharing information about topics and dates for the meetings.

If you are interested in participating, please send your email address to or and your name will be put on the mailing list. Also feel free to circulate to anyone else you think could be interested.
