Getting the message: BRCA1/2 transcript levels in ovarian cancer
Tony Fischer, formerly of Iowa Interdisciplinary Genetics fame, will be one of two students presenting for MSTP (click link to see Abe’s mug on the homepage) Grand Rounds this Friday regarding the involvement of BRCA1/2 gene transcription in ovarian cancer. Given the importance of these genes in breast cancer, the involvement of these two genes has not been as closely examined in ovarian cancer although they play a substantial role. The talk will be in 2117 MERF @ 12:30 on Friday, October 17th. Refreshments (free food) @ 12:15. The link for the poster is here. Tony always gives great presentations and should be interesting to see him in action again.
10.28.08 update…One of the interesting findings presented was that a miRNA (miR 146) is capable of targeting both the BRCA1 and BRCA2 transcipts.
