Noncoding RNA in Health and Disease

Noncoding RNA molecules are involved in key cellular processes affecting neurodevelopment and immunity.

Noncoding RNA describes a wide array of RNA molecules, ranging in size and function. Some of these, such as microRNAs (miRNAs) and long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs), regulate gene expression and have important consequences for maintaining normal cellular function and protecting against infectious agents. In this webinar, Paulina Pawlica and Cheen Euong Ang will discuss miRNA and lncRNA and their roles in infectious disease and neurodegeneration.

Topics to be covered

  • How SARS-CoV-2 microRNAs suppress host immune genes
  • LncRNA mutations in human neurodevelopmental disorders

Thursday, November 3rd, 2022 | 9:30 AM - 11:00 AM Eastern Time
This webinar will be available to view live and on demand.
