The institute seminar on Wednesday December 14th will be held by Subree Subramanian, Assistant Professor, Department of Surgery, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, USA. Dr. Subramanian received his Ph.D. in molecular and cell biology in 2003 from the Center for Cellular and Molecular Biology, Jawaharlal Nehru University, India, and completed his post-doctoral fellowship at Stanford University, Stanford, California. He joined the faculty at the University of Minnesota in 2007 and his laboratory focuses on the microRNA mediated gene regulatory networks in sarcomas and other cancer types.
Title of his talk: MicroRNAs in Osteosarcoma
Time and place: 12.00, Auditorium, new research building, Montebello.

MicroRNAs in Osteosarcoma
Subbaya Subramanian, Ph.D.
Research Program: Genetic Mechanisms of Cancer
Assistant Professor, Department of Surgery

Research Interests
MicroRNA mediated gene regulation in human sarcomas; gene expression profiles—developing novel diagnostic markers and identification of therapeutic targets in sarcomas and other cancers.
