2021 NHLBI Long Non-coding (lnc) RNAs Symposium: from Basic Mechanism to Human Disease

March 11 - 12 , 2021


The NHLBI is hosting 2021 NHLBI Long Non-Coding RNAs Symposium: from Basic Mechanism to Human Disease (virtual) on March 11-12, 2021. The purpose of the conference is to establish an interactive forum at the NIH to discuss and advance the understanding of lncRNA biology and its translational applications, review emerging insights into the molecular mechanisms that lncRNAs regulate diverse biological processes, highlight the recent progress in the research of lncRNAs as key regulators of human pathophysiology and discuss the potential of the large repertoire of human lncRNAs as therapeutic targets for human disease.

This conference will bring together basic scientists and clinicians in order to foster new and productive research collaborations towards both basic and translational advances, as well as offer valuable training and presentation opportunities for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and junior faculties.

This event is free, though registration is required.
