3D Tissue Models
Noncoding RNAs and Cancer
Eden Roc Renaissance Beach Resort and Spa
4525 Collins Avenue Miami Beach, FL 33140, United States (305) 531-0000
Miami Beach, Florida , USA
This conference will highlight the basic biology of RNA regulation, the latest translational work on the role of noncoding RNAs in cancer initiation and progression, and the use of noncoding RNAs in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. This conference is a follow-up to the AACR's 2007 noncoding RNAs conference held outside of Boston. This year's program will feature sessions on long noncoding RNAs and their biology, chromatin modifications, miRNA biology, miRNA regulation in development and in cancer, RNA in cancer, and RNA therapeutics. Register today to join the thought leaders developing the conference, the impressive roster of speakers, and other researchers from around the world at the 2012 AACR RNAs conference in Miami.
