Patrick Maschmeyer: Functions of microRNAs in chronic inflammatory diseases
Thursday, 17 January 2019 || Time: 14:00
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small (~ 22 nucleotide long), single-stranded non-coding RNAs. They are important regulators of gene expression in cells and are critical in a multitude of cellular processes such as cell division, cell survival or migration. Recent studies demonstrated that miRNAs can contribute to the pathogenesis of chronic inflammatory diseases. This lecture will highlight the relationship between miRNAs and chronic inflammatory conditions and focus on mechanistic functions of miRNAs in the pathology of chronic inflammation.
when: 14:00-15:00, weekly, every Thursday

• Are you familiar with chronic inflammatory diseases?
• Have you heard that any organ can be affected?
• Joints, skin, kidneys, nerves, intestines – all?
• understand one inflammatory disease – cure them all?
…. these and further topics will be covered in the new Lecture Series given by our Postdoc Fellows.
