Post-transcriptional regulation in ageing and age-related diseases
The India-EMBO Lecture Course will bring together national and international experts to share novel research trends that will provide a balanced view on post-transcriptional mechanisms involved in regulating ageing and age-related diseases, such as cancer, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases. This will include RNA-binding proteins, non-coding RNAs, proteostasis, AI, Omics, and Systems biology approaches.
EMBO Courses and Workshops are selected for their excellent scientific quality and timelines, provision of good networking activities for all participants, and speaker gender diversity. Aging is a risk factor for a broad spectrum of diseases and is accompanied by transcriptional, metabolic, and phenotypic changes. Exploring novel avenues is key for developing interventions to enhance lifespan and delay the onset of age-related morbidities. This includes assessing how aberrant expression of RNAs, proteins, metabolites, and their modifications can cause or result from aging and age-related conditions. This lecture course aims to provide a balanced view of post-transcriptional mechanisms that regulate aging and age-related diseases, such as cancer, cardiovascular, and neurodegenerative diseases.
The course will encompass four poster sessions corresponding to each topic. The duration of each poster session will be 90 minutes. All poster presenters will upload the poster with a 3‑minute narrated flash talk describing their posters, and eight abstracts will be selected for platform presentation. Submission of an abstract is required for consideration for a travel award. This course will bring together early-stage and experienced researchers to exchange ideas, evaluate recent advances and technologies, and establish synergies in the fields of RNA and aging biology.
