Basic/Clinical Science Session

LncING RNAs with Diabetic Nephropathy

November 19, 2016 | 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Location: W190B

Session Description

This session looks at noncoding microRNAs underlying diabetic kidney disease (DKD). Standard therapy of diabetic nephropathy (DN) shows modest effects on halting progression of this devastating disease. New approaches that aim to target noncoding genes in DN are emerging.

Session Objectives

Upon completion of this session, the participant will be able to: 1. apply new approaches for potential treatment of DKD using state-of-the-art technology in RNA biology; 2. identify the role of microRNAs in health and disease; 3. describe the role of long noncoding RNAs in progression of DKD; and 4. identify different noncoding RNAs.
