EURASNET Workshop “Splicing in Cell Biology”

Instituto de Medicina Molecular, Universidade de Lisboa

The participants will be members of EURASNET labs, including graduate students and post-docs.

Each invited speaker will present an introductory lecture in the morning and a more specialist research seminar in the afternoon. Each lecture will be followed by an informal tutorial discussion with participants.
