Title of talk: “The miRacles of ultraconservation” by George A Calin, M.D., Ph.D.


Tirsdag 14. juni

Kl.: 11.00-11.50

Sted: Aud. Cerebrum,  plan 7 og 8 MH-vest.  

The rationale of the work of George Calin, M.D., Ph.D. is straightforward: cancer is a complex genetic disease involving structural and expression abnormalities of both coding and non-coding genes.

Dr. Calin's main research interests are:

1) the involvement of non-coding RNAs in human diseases in general and of microRNAs in human cancers in particular

2) the study of familial predisposition to human cancers

3) the identification of ncRNA biomarkers in body fluids

4) the development of new RNA-based therapeutic options for cancer patients. He was the first to discover the link between miRNAs and cancer in 2002, and has since then made a significant contribution to the understanding of the functional role of miRNAs in tumorigenesis.
