The Education Committee has prepared an excellent mini-course entitled “Understanding MicroRNAs (miRNAs) and Their Role in Human Disease and Teratogenesis” which begins at 7:00 am on Tuesday.
The Teratology Society presents you with the opportunity to learn from two leading experts in the field of microRNAS (miRNAs). The Education Committee is delighted to announce the 2012 sunrise mini-course, featuring Anthony Leung from Johns Hopkins University and Rajesh Miranda from Texas A&M.
Dr. Leung is a collaborator and frequent co-author with Nobel Laureate Phillip Sharp with special expertise in the role of miRNA in the stress response. Dr. Miranda is a pioneer in understanding the role of miRNAs following prenatal alcohol exposure. So we will truly be learning from those on the leading edge of developmental and molecular biology.
The course is a direct result of YOUR input during previous Teratology Society education courses, so we want to thank those who take the time to fill out the course evaluations. The evaluations are extremely important in the planning process.
With our strategic plan calling for year-long continuing education and Webinars, we encourage you to keep those ideas flowing into the Society. We want to develop programming that benefits professional growth.
And here’s the best news: It’s not too late to register for this year’s mini-course. We’ll have plenty of breakfast goodies and coffee waiting for you.
