The Non-coding RNA Journal Webinar Series

Unexpected Noncoding Roles of RNA in the Regulation of the Cancer Genome

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: 10 May 2022

Time: 4:00 pm CEST | 9:00 am CDT | 10:00 am EDT | 10:00 pm CST Asia

Webinar ID: 853 2366 8440

Chair

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

DETAILS
Bio
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

Center for Applied Medical Research, University of Navarra, Pamplona, Spain

DETAILS
Bio
Maite Huarte obtained her PhD from Universidad Autónoma de Madrid at the National Center of Biotechnology. Later worked in Harvard Medical School and the Broad Institute, initiating studies of long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) in gene regulation. She now leads a research group at CIMA (University of Navarra, Spain) that investigates the contribution of lncRNAs and other type of RNAs to epigenetic and non-epigenetic regulation in cancer cells. They have showed that lncRNAs play key roles in the regulation of several cancer pathways, influencing gene expression and genomic integrity.

Webinar Content

On Tuesday 10 May 2022, MDPI and the Journal ncRNA organized their 3rd webinar, entitled "Unexpected Noncoding Roles of RNA in the Regulation of the Cancer Genome".

The introduction was held by the Chair of the webinar, Prof. Dr. George A. Calin, Professor at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, United States. 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.

The guest speaker of this webinar was Dr. Maite Huarte. She leads a research group at CIMA (University of Navarra, Spain) that investigates the contribution of lncRNAs and other type of RNAs to epigenetic and non-epigenetic regulation in cancer cells. They have showed that lncRNAs play key roles in the regulation of several cancer pathways, influencing gene expression and genomic integrity.

The presentation was followed by a Q&A and a discussion. The webinar was offered via Zoom and required registration to attend. Due to the presence of unpublished data on her presentation, the speaker did not wish to share her recording.
