Tutorial Video Abstract

In this webinar you will learn the tips and tricks necessary for you to successfully work with miRNAs, and how you can use them to further your research.

The main points we will cover are:

  • Tips and practical advice to help you work with miRNAs, including isolation and delivery
  • The biology and mechanism of miRNAs and why this matters to your research
  • An example of how miRNAs are being used in disease research. The presenter will take you through the identification of certain aberrantly expressed ones in breast cancer and how they might be used as therapeutic agents.
  • How you can identify important miRNAs in your samples—including tumor cells

Practical tips, applications and advice for miRNA research

Dr. Brian Adams is a researcher on the leading edge of miRNA research. Join him in this webinar as he demystifies working with miRNAs and gives you his best tips and tricks for working with them in your research.

Since Drs. Andrew Fire and Craig Mello won the Nobel Prize for their work on small RNAs, the field has exploded with possibilities and has spawned several vibrant research areas.

Brian’s own research examines the role of miRNAs in breast cancer, and the potential therapeutic opportunities they offer. He will discuss how he has identified several ones that are aberrantly expressed in triple-negative breast cancer, for which there is currently no targeted treatment options available, how reintroducing these particular ones can promote anti-tumorigenic phenotypes, and how they could be used to sensitize tumors to chemotherapeutic agents as well as gamma-irradiation.

Using this research story as an example Brian will provide you with practical, hands-on advice that will help you get better results with miRNA isolation and delivery in your experiments. He’ll also guide you through the biology and mechanisms of action of and explain the potential therapeutic applications.

Learn more about the full potential of miRNAs and find out all the inside tricks for working with them to take your research to the next level.
