Join our 2-part webinar series! Intro to qPCR and role of RNAs as biomarkers in cardiovascular research


Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Preventative and therapeutic strategies focused on controlling traditional risk factors have not always been successful. Recently, the use of miRNAs as novel biomarkers in CVD has opened up new possibilities for discovering novel therapeutic targets and understanding CVD development. To date, the total number of miRNAs encoded in the human genome surpasses 1,000.

In this 2-part webinar series, the first part will focus on qPCR technology and associated challenges and solutions. The second part will cover why and how microRNAs are being investigated as biomarkers for CVD, as well as examine some recent findings in the field. Join us to find out how scientists are investigating the role of noncoding RNA in CVD and how you can get started in your lab!

Save your spot for the live presentation and take this opportunity to get your questions answered by the experts.
