MicroRNAs have emerged as key regulators of numerous diseases including cancer, heart disease, neurological disorders and vascular abnormalities. This meeting will bring together international leaders in the field of microRNA biology and its relationship to human disease. Because the meeting will be concurrent with the Keystone meeting on non-coding RNAs and cancer, we will focus on diseases other than cancer. There will be combined plenary sessions focusing on microRNA mechanisms of action and the identification of microRNA targets. Subsequent sessions will cover the latest advances on the roles of microRNAs in stem cells, cardiovascular, muscle, infectious, and neurological diseases. The meeting will conclude with combined sessions on recent advances in microRNA therapeutics.
