Prof Carlo Croce – Ohio State University, Columbus, USA

Prof Carlo Croce explains how the targeting of a gene which regulates micro-RNA can improve the diagnostics, prognostics, monitoring, and potentially treatment of many cancers.  Although this gene was initially identified as playing an important role in the development of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia, it has now known to be involved in all cancer types. Prof Croce explains the underlying mechanisms behind the effects of micro RNAs and outlines how these can be exploited in order to develop effective treatments with very low levels of adverse effects.
