RNA Editing in Brain Health and Disease

Scientists unravel the complexity of RNA editing to gain insights into neurodevelopmental processes and disorders.

RNA editing catalyzed by adenosine deaminases acting on RNA (ADARs) occurs naturally at thousands of sites across the human transcriptome. This process profoundly affects gene expression and influences a wide range of human diseases from cancer to neurological disorders. In this webinar, Michael Breen will discuss the role of ADAR-mediated RNA editing in neurodevelopmental disorders and how his team develops site-directed RNA editing therapeutics. 

Topics to be covered

  • Studying RNA editing using transcriptome data and reporter assays
  • Characterizing RNA editing across human brain regions, cell types, and brain development

Wednesday, April 5th, 2023 | 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM Eastern Time
This webinar will be available to view live and on demand.
