Presentations & Networking in a Virtual World

Presenter:

Aurélie Lacroix, PhD, Sixfold Bioscience

Keith T. Gagnon, Ph.D, Southern Illinois University School of Medicine

Date: 25 August 2021

Time: 8am Pacific / 11am Eastern / 5m Central

Description:

Join us for a presentation of tips & tricks for making the most of your experience with a virtual meeting. Presenters will share what has worked for them and give suggestions on interacting and engaging with a virtual meeting. This is the perfect time as we prepare to gather for four days in September for the OTS 2021 Annual Meeting. If you are planning a poster or short talk, don’t miss this discussion! We’ll also discuss the networking platform “Spatial Chat” and take questions for a lively discussion. Bring your experiences and questions and join us!

Presenter Biography

Aurélie Lacroix, PhD
Sixfold Bioscience

Aurélie’s research aims at using nucleic acids as a material for self-assembly of nanoparticles with therapeutic properties. She is currently a postdoctoral Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellow at Sixfold Bioscience. The start-up, based in London (UK), develops RNA-based nanostructures for cancer therapies and delivery of gene therapeutics. There, Aurélie is studying how RNA 3D nanostructures interact with serum proteins, to further improve their clinical outcomes.

Keith T. Gagnon, Ph.D.

Southern Illinois University
School of Medicine

I obtained a BS in Biochemistry from North Carolina State University (2000-2003). For my PhD, I trained as an RNA biochemist under the direction of Dr. E. Stuart Maxwell at North Carolina State University (2003-2007). I learned classic biochemical techniques and studied the RNA-protein interactions and structure-function relationships within RNA-guided box C/D small nucleolar ribonucleoproteins. This included mutagenesis, RNA structure mapping, protein engineering, enzyme catalysis, and site-specific RNA labeling.
