NUS ncRNA Symposium

Date/Time
06 Jan, Monday, 9:00 am - 6:00 pm
Venue
NUS, Clinical Research Centre (MD11), Level 1, Auditorium
Description

Identification of disease-specific molecular landscapes for proper patient stratification is pivotal to the success of precision medicine. Up until recent years, RNA was implicated by Francis Crick’s central dogma as the key messenger between DNA and protein. With the advent of new technologies, we now know that the human genome encodes a vast repertoire of non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs), which was thought to be meaningless “dark matter”. Our current understanding of ncRNAs may look like an intertwined mess of molecules, but collectively they exhibit architecture and coordination, leading to elegantly choreographed regulation of DNA and protein expression/functions. While ncRNAs constitute more than 90 percent of the RNAs made from the human genome, most of the 30,000-plus known ncRNAs have been discovered in the past 10 years and are largely unstudied.

In this Symposium, we invite you to join a distinguished panel of overseas and local experts to discuss the utility of ncRNA-based diagnostics and therapeutics in the clinical management of human diseases, as well as to dissect the forms and functions of ncRNAs that play critical roles in defining the clinical trajectory of diverse human diseases.

Workshop: Fundamentals of Simulation-Based Healthcare Education

Date/Time
12 May - 13 May, Tuesday - Wednesday, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Venue
NUS, Centre for Translational Medicine (MD6), Level 3, Centre for Healthcare Simulation (CHS), #03-04
Description

This two-day workshop is designed to be interactive; consisting of short didactic sessions and hands-on practice of the essential skills needed for simulation-based healthcare education. Participants will work in groups to run their simulation scenarios, discuss the common pitfalls encountered, and receive feedback on these sessions. They will also have an opportunity to share their experiences and exchange ideas on integrating simulation-based learning into their existing curricula. This workshop is aimed at faculty who are interested in using simulation methodologies to enhance their curriculum.

Workshop: 10th Diagnostic Cytopathology Workshop

Date/Time
29 May - 31 May, Friday - Sunday
Venue
Description

A 3-day Diagnostic Cytopathology Workshop that is designed to provide the newest insights and to address key diagnostic issues and updated topics of practical importance in gynecological and non-gynecological cytopathology. The highlight of this workshop includes an emphasis on EUS and EBUS-FNA with the aim of familiarizing attendees with common practical challenges and providing a diagnostic paradigm for practicing pathologists. The workshop includes sessions addressed to cytopathologists, pathologists confronted with cytology in general practice, residents, cytotechnologists, and clinicians with special intereste in cytology.
