microRNAs: Small but Mighty Tools

For a discussion of the current state of disease-specific miRNA profiles and miRNA-based therapeutics, The Scientist is bringing together a panel of experts to share their work with miRNA interventions.

By | September 7, 2016

Array-based analysis of microRNA (miRNA) expression has provided valuable insight into disease-related transcripts, both protective and predisposing. Therapeutic design based on these data sets has enabled both supplementation with protective miRNAs such as miRNA mimics, and silencing of predisposing miRNAs using complementary RNAs. For a discussion of the current state of disease-specific miRNA profiles and miRNA-based therapeutics, The Scientist is bringing together a panel of experts to share their work with miRNA interventions. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with the experts, ask questions, and seek advice on topics related to their work.

Topics to be covered:

  • The various roles of miRNAs in disease progression and recovery
  • Steps for developing miRNA-based therapeutics
