Therapeutic Targeting of Neuroendocrine Tumours Utilising microRNAs
Conference Recording Feb 01, 2013
About the Speaker
Stan Sidhu is a Professor of Endocrine Surgery with a strong interest in translational and basic science research projects to understand the pathophysiology of endocrine cancers and to determine ways in which targeted therapies can be developed to treat these cancers. His clinical and translational research interests focus on the treatment of patients with thyroid and adrenal malignancy.AbstractThis talk will focus on published and novel work regarding miRNAs as diagnostic and prognostic markers in neuroendocrine cancers, their role in the induction of autophagy as a therapeutic modality and describe preliminary work utilising nanoparticle mediated therapeutic delivery of miRNAs .
