Non-coding RNAs in Cancer and Development

8th May 2017

The Royal Society of Medicine, London, UK


The meeting will aim to encourage collaborations and sharing of experimental protocols/techniques, and to inspire delegates to accelerate research in this rapidly-expanding field. It is hoped that delegates will leave the meeting with a better understanding of how non-coding RNAs modulate disease pathogenesis, how they are regulated, the power of non-coding RNA bioinformatics to propel research, the potential of non-coding RNAs as therapeutic targets and biomarkers, and the considerable challenges to be overcome in this area.
