Thursday, January 26 LIVE WEBINAR: Control-Alter-Delete: Epigenetic regulation by non-coding RNAs in neuronal systems 

Presented by: Dr. Jeremy Day, Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurobiology at the University of Alabama

Abstract of Presentation: Emerging evidence suggests that non-coding RNAs can interact with epigenetic modifiers to both recruit and suppress epigenetic mechanisms, and that this functions can be regulated by activity states of neurons. Register today to join Dr Day as he highlights his recent work exploring how non-coding RNA species regulate DNA methylation in neuronal systems, including interactions between non-coding RNAs and DNA methyltransferases and genome-wide characterization of non-coding RNAs that arise from protein-coding genes , and  reviews the functional modulation of non-coding RNAs in memory formation and behavior.

Presented by: Professor Jean Paul Thiery, Research Director Emeritus at the Institut Gustave Roussy, Comprehensive Cancer Center at Villejuif,and at the CNRS unit Matter and Complex Systems, Visiting Professor, School of Medicine of National University of Singapore (NUS), and at CCBIO University of Bergen

Abstract of Presentation: This webinar will review recent data on adhesive mechanisms involved in the maintenance of an epithelial state versus the transition to a mesenchymal-like phenotype, as well as discuss a number of studies in support of the concept that EMT contributes to tumor progression.

Thursday, February 2 LIVE WEBINAR: Targeting axonal transport in Alzheimer's disease

Presented by: Elizabeth Glennon, Ph.D, Alzheimer's Research UK fellow, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at King's College London

Abstract of Presentation: Disruption of axonal transport is an early event in several neurodegenerative diseases. For this reason, it is a potential target for drug discovery. Register today to hear Dr Glennon discuss this exciting topic in Alzheimer's research including, how the disruption of axonal transport contributes to the development of Alzheimer's disease, and the mechanisms of axonal transport of the Alzheimer's amyloid precursor protein, and how these are altered in the disease.

                                              Jean Paul serves as a Scientific Advisor of the Dean of Medical School NUS, Singapore, and in a number of other Institutions worldwide. He was until June 2015, Professor and Head of the Biochemistry Department, School of Medicine at NUS. He has also served a joint appointment as Research Director at IMCB A*STAR Singapore, and Senior Principal Investigator at the Cancer Science Institute at NUS.

                                              Jean Paul is credited as the first to propose that EMT control invasion and dissemination while the reverse process, MET, is required for the development of clinically detectable metastases in carcinoma. His current research's focus is to unravel the mechanisms of invasion and metastasis of carcinoma cells, while his seminal contributions to bladder carcinoma studies have led to the discovery of the molecular mechanisms underlying the formation of superficial or invasive tumors. Currently, his research is focusing on oncogenomics and the creation of functional approaches to characterize bladder, lung breast, and ovarian carcinoma progression- with the ultimate goal to apply EMT-based therapeutic approaches in the near future.
