UCL Cancer Institute

3rd International Symposium on Cancer, microRNAs, and other non-coding RNAs

12th September 2012,

Darwin Lecture Theatre, University College London, London, UK

Registration deadline: 31st August 2012

Abstract submission deadline: 23rd August 2012

The study of microRNAs and other non-coding RNAs has revolutionized our understanding of gene expression regulation during cancer development and progression, creating one of the fastest growing research fields in cancer biomedicine with realistic therapeutic potential. The third international symposium on Cancer, microRNAs and other non-coding RNAs will highlight the function and regulation of non-coding RNAs during oncogenesis. The symposium will cover a wide range of themes, from the basic biology of the RNA silencing machinery to clinical applications of microRNA antagonists, and from the function of small RNAs in transcription to the delineation of functional networks of small RNAs and RNA-binding proteins in development, immunity, and cancer. Overall, we aim to create an inspiring interactive forum for basic and clinician scientists working on non-coding RNAs and cancer.

We look forward to seeing you in September
