As the appreciation for the importance of non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) continues to emerge, it is increasingly clear that ncRNAs may play critical roles in gene regulatory processes during development and differentiation. New RNA-based cancer therapies and other discoveries may be exploited for the development of useful biomarkers for cancer diagnosis and prognosis.

The goals of this workshop are to provide an opportunity for clinicians to interact with biologists and bioinformaticians and tackle many of the critical problems of non-coding RNA research and understand better the molecular mechanisms of ncRNAs (and miRNAs) in normal development in biology and in cancer.
