Event Type:  Webinar (This is an NIH Science event)
Title:  Micro-RNA Genetic Variation Related to Head and Neck Cancer Risk and Survival
Description:  Brock Christensen, Ph.D.External Web Site Policy
Associate Professor of Epidemiology, Community and Family Medicine, and Molecular and Systems Biology, Dartmouth Geisel School of Medicine

Polymorphisms in microRNAs and their target sites can disrupt microRNA-dependent gene regulation, and have been associated with cancer susceptibility and outcomes. However, genome-scale analyses of genetic variation related to micro-RNA (miR-SNPs) in cancer are lacking and microRNA-related SNPs tend to be in poor linkage with markers genotyped with many platforms used in GWAS approaches. This presentation includes results from testing the relation of >40,000 common miR-SNPs with head and neck risk and survival in two independent studies with more than 2,000 total cases and more than 2,000 total controls. In addition, approaches for and results from investigating the functional implications of miR-SNPs on miRNA-mRNA interactions will be discussed.
