- Raffaella Santoro (Zurich, Switzerland): Genome organization and function
- Francesco Paneni (Zurich, Switzerland): Epigenetic Control of Inflammation in Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction
- Michael Alexanian (San Francisco, USA): Modulating Cell States in Heart Disease
Session 2 : Transcriptomics
- Daniel Andergassen (Munich, Germany): Uncovering the missing X factors to understand sex bias in cardiovascular disease
- Ralf Gilsbach (Heidelberg, Germany): Decoding and steering cardiomyocyte enhancers
- Monika Gladka (Amsterdam, The Netherlands): Single-cell sequencing to identify cardiac repair mechanisms
- Andrea Caporali (Edinburgh, UK): miRNAs control of revascularisation and vascular diseases
Session 3 : Noncoding RNAs
- Rory Johnson (Dublin, Ireland): CRISPR-powered discovery of non-coding RNA therapeutic vulnerabilities
- Marco Marcia (Grenoble, France): Dissecting biological mechanisms and folding dynamics of medically-relevant large non-coding RNAs

Symposium registration (before February 20 via https://tinyurl.com/RNA-Lausanne2023) is free, but mandatory.
In the afternoon of March 10, paper discussion workshops on the three session topics will be open to doctoral students of the Life Science PhD of the FBM-UNIL (and others on demand). Please choose whether to participate during registration
The UNIL-FBM doctoral school attributes max. 1.25 ECTS to doctoral candidates for participation (0.5 ECTS for participation in the talk sessions only & 0.75 ECTS for workshop participation.
The event will be accredited as continuing education by the Society of Swiss Veterinaries GSTSVS.
