Upcoming Live Webinar and Q&A Session with Dr Brian D. Adams of
“MicroRNAs as biomarkers and therapeutic targets in triple negative breast cancer”
January 21, 2016 | 11:00am EST/ 8:00am PST
Triple negative breast cancer accounts for a disproportionate share of the total breast cancer morbidity because of its aggressive behavior, increased incidence in younger women, and lack of effective targeted therapies. miRNAs could serve as superior therapeutic agents for this breast cancer type.
This webinar will review:
- miRNAs and noncoding RNA biology
- Dysregulation of miRNAs associates with disease etiology
- miRNAs as biomarkers
- Techniques used to profile and study miRNA biology
- miRNAs as therapeutic agents and/or targets

About the Speaker:
Brian D. Adams is currently an Instructor at Harvard Medical School in the lab of Dr Frank Slack with over 9 years of experience in the fields of microRNA and cancer research. Brian completed his graduate studies at the University of Connecticut, where he was the first to identify that miRNAs are a crucial regulator of hormone-responsiveness in breast cancer patients. He further completed his postdoctoral studies at Yale, where he investigated how miRNAs can serve as chemo-sensitizers in the context of normal hematopoietic recovery and acute myeloid leukemia.
