The Non-coding RNA Journal Webinar Series

MicroRNA in Cancer Pathogenesis

The Non-coding RNA journal webinar is open to all who enjoy doing any type of research on the topic of non-coding transcripts, or are passionate about learning about this exciting and competitive research area. The webinar speakers will present new findings from basic to translational research. Any interesting ideas for topics and speakers are welcomed!

Date: 8 February 2022

Time: 4:00pm CET | 10:00am EST | 11:00pm CST Asia

Webinar ID: 846 6923 4695

Webinar Secretariat:


Department of Translational Molecular Pathogenesis, Center for RNA Interference and Non-coding RNAs, University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, USA

Prof. Dr. George A. Calin received both his M.D. and Ph.D. degrees at Carol Davila University of Medicine in Bucharest, Romania. After working in cytogenetics as an undergraduate student with Dragos Stefanescu in Bucharest, Calin completed cancer genomics training in Massimo Negrini’s laboratory at the University of Ferrara, Italy, and in 2000, he became a postdoctoral fellow in Carlo Croce’s laboratory at Kimmel Cancer Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In June 2007, Calin joined MD Anderson as an associate professor in the Experimental Therapeutics department and was promoted to Professor with tenure in 2013. He explores new RNA therapeutic options for cancer patients and studies the roles of microRNAs and other non-coding RNAs in cancer initiation and progression, as well as the mechanisms of cancer predisposition.

Invited Speaker

Department of Cancer Biology and Genetics, Comprehensive Cancer Center, The Ohio State University College of Medicine, Columbus, USA

Prof. Dr. Carlo M. Croce is the John W Wolfe Chair in Human Cancer Genetics and a member of the Cancer Biology Program at the OSUCCC – James, where he studies the molecular changes in genes that lead to cancer. He is particularly interested in the early changes of malignancy and how they might serve as targets for new treatment and preventive agents.
