Our research interest is focused on regulatory noncoding (nc)RNAs. In high eukaryotes, regulatory ncRNAs have been shown to regulate gene expression, chromatin domains and genome stability. There are a growing number of evidence suggesting that they play a central role in cellular homeostasis during normal and pathological development.
Cancer de la prostate : un nouvel essai clinique pour valider des biomarqueurs urinaires diagnostiques et pronostiquesJusqu’à présent, aucun biomarqueur moléculaire n’est suffisamment robuste pour détecter précocement un cancer de la prostate ou pour surveiller les tumeurs non agressives en sommeil. Pour cette raison, la mise au point d’un test non invasif sera une réelle avancée pour améliorer le suivi et la prise en charge des patients.30/11/2021
This course will explore the versatility of non-genic DNA elements and non-coding RNAs across a spectrum of cellular processes, in humans and model organisms, and their implication in physiology and disease. Internationally recognized experts will present their latest findings related to the identification and functional characterization of the noncoding genome and discuss novel concepts in genome regulation and evolution, with a strong emphasis on experimental and computational tools. Thematic sessions will include long and small non-coding RNAs, transposable elements, structural DNA repeats and non-coding regulatory elements. This course will offer to young students and research fellows the opportunity to broaden their knowledge and discuss their work with an international scientific community in a warm and stimulating environment of the Institut Curie in Paris.
In addition to scientific conferences several tutorials on communication and career development will be proposed together with a sightseeing excursion in Paris.
The registration is open from September 2021 to February 2022 at the web site of the Training Unit of Institut Curie and free of charge. The number of participants is limited to 30.
Master and PhD students can validate their participation at the level of 6 ECTs (70 hrs) (upon acceptance by a respective university).
This course benefits from the financial support of Institut Curie and Université Franco-Allemande (https://www.dfh-ufa.org).
