Minisymposium at Neuroscience 2008

If you plan on attending the SFN annual meeting this week, don’t miss the upcoming minisymposium focusing on microRNA.

Role of MicroRNAs in Neurological Disorders and Neuroprotection CME
Chaired by: Julie A. Saugstad, PhD
Co-Chaired by: Raghu Vemuganti, PhD
Wednesday, Nov. 19, 8:30 – 11 a.m.
Walter E. Washington Convention Center:
Room 146A
MicroRNAs regulate gene expression and development in animals by repression of messenger RNA translation. Recent evidence shows that microRNAs repress translation in proliferating cells, but upregulate translation during cell cycle arrest. This fi nding underscores the importance of delineating the roles of microRNAs in the brain, which is comprised of terminally differentiated neurons and quiescent glial cells that can proliferate upon stimulation. This minisymposium will present current studies focused on the role of microRNAs in brain disorders and in neuroprotection.
