The Non-coding RNA Journal Webinar Series

The Evolutionarily Conserved miRNA-137 Modulates the Wake to Sleep Ratio

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: 13 September 2022

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

DETAILS
Bio
Prof. Dr. Shizuka Uchida, Ph.D., is a Professor & Co-Director at the Center for RNA Medicine, Department of Clinical Medicine, Aalborg University (Copenhagen, Denmark). Prof. Uchida’s lab is interested in elucidating the functions of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) and epitranscriptomics enzymes using dry (bioinformatics) and wet (biology) lab techniques. He and his team have built a number of bioinformatics tools to help analyze high-throughput data (e.g., microarrays, RNA-seq). Prof. Uchida utilizes knockout and transgenic mice to understand the effects of lncRNAs and epitranscriptomics to cardiovascular system and development as well as cardiovascular disease.

DETAILS
Bio
Dr. Anja Holm, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor at the Center for RNA Medicine, Department of Clinical Medicine, Aalborg University (Copenhagen, Denmark), and Senior Researcher at the Department of Clinical Experimental Research, Glostrup Hospital (Copenhagen, Denmark). Dr. Holm has more than 12 years of experience in RNA research, including non-coding RNAs, and for the past five years, her main interest has been in developing RNA therapeutics using antisense oligonucleotides (ASOs) for a broad field of diseases especially neurological diseases like migraine and sleep disorders. She utilizes the ASOs as a tool to investigate the mechanism of the selected targets in vitro and as a potential therapeutic for treating various diseases using animal models.
