Mark Your Calendar! The 10th Annual microRNA Conference will be held March 17-18, 2014 at the Omni Parker House in Boston, MA.

microRNAs are playing an important role in a range of diseases such as cancer, metabolic diseases and cardiovascular disorders. Their involvement in many physiological pathways, makes them an excellent target for pharmaceutical drug development and their use as biomarkers or for profiling and screening turns them into a valuable tool for diagnostics. This conference highlights the latest developments in using miRNA's for health and disease, the novel applications and progress made in manipulating microRNA, and the opportunities for using microRNA as a tool.


  • Therapeutic Potential in Inflammation, Cancer and Pain
  • New Technological Strategies
  • microRNAs as Biomarkers and in Diagnostics
  • Tissue-Based Analysis
  • Circulating miRNAs
