Here you will find videos of scientific seminars delivered live or via the web, either by ERC consortium members or by outside speakers sponsored by the consortium. Under the tutorials tab are videos explaining how to use consortium software tools as well as slide packs from past workshops on the same topic.


To provide the scientific community with a better understanding of the work of the ERC consortium, we will periodically post here videos of web seminars presented by consortium members and other researchers in the field, as well as select videos of live talks.

The ERCC’s 9th semi-annual meeting, ERCC9, was held November 6-7, 2017 in Rockville, Maryland. ERCC9 was open to the public, and we hope all participants agree that the conference strengthened the field of exRNA research going forward, providing cross-fertilization and opportunities for collaboration between consortium members and the wider scientific community. A summary of the event is here, and the full ERCC9 program is here.

If you have questions about the conference or need help finding another researcher you met there, please contact and we will try to make the connection.
