CIC CAPES Research Workshop 2015 Home Page

WORKSHOP BACKGROUND

This research workshop is a collaboration between seven CIC universities in the U.S. and CAPES in Brazil. It is intended to foster collaborations and connections that advance biomedical science in both countries.

FOCUS: 

MicroRNAs (miR) and other non-coding RNAs are involved in almost every cellular process imaginable, and they have been linked to most chronic diseases (cancer, heart failure, diabetes, neurological, etc). This topic has wide application. MiRs and other non-coding RNA research is being conducted worldwide, and independent of biological system. These RNAs are also becoming targets for drug discovery and are rapidly entering clinical trials, so the topic is highly translational and can be leveraged to initiate many new collaborations and opportunities for funding in both the US and Brazil. 
 
OBJECTIVES:

  • To build a scholarly network among Brazilian and CIC faculty through which scholars explore topics of common research interest.
  • To facilitate collaborative research projects on chosen topics.
  • To develop future research agendas.

 OUTCOMES:

  • Effective sharing of knowledge and practices.
  • Identify opportunities for learning, and exchanges in support of implementing collaborations.
  • Generate future collaborative projects.
