The eighth edition of the Louis-Jeantet Symposium took place on Tuesday, 15 October 2019 at the University Medical Center in Geneva.
This edition was organised by two Louis-Jeantet prize winners: Elena Conti, Max-Planck Institute of Biochemistry, Munich, and Venki Ramakrishnan, MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge. Together with speakers specialised in the same area, they shared their research on RNA in the balance: between translation and decay.
