This course is designed to provide a comprehensive analysis of the current state of the microRNA and epigenetics fields focusing upon the underlying science, emerging trends in technology development, the competitive environment, and market metrics.




  • Biological Significance and Role
  • Utility of Expression Patterns/Signatures as a Determinant for Physiological Processes as well as Disease/Pathological Situations
  • Technologies for Studying microRNAs and Epigenetic Modifications
  • The Competitive Environment
  • Market Metrics
  • Diagnostics: Role of Circulating microRNAs and Methylated Biomarkers as Potential Disease Markers with Prognostic or Predictive Value
  • Exosomes
  • Therapeutics
    • microRNAs as Therapeutics: Analysis of the Clinical Trial Pipeline, Companies in the Field, and Therapeutic Areas Addressed
    • Epigenetic Modifications as Potential Therapeutics: A number of companies are embarking on therapeutic programs focusing on chromatin-modifying enzymes as targets—These companies and their areas of focus will be analyzed

This training course is ideally suited for researchers involved in investigations focusing on microRNAs or epigenetic changes in biological and disease situations—both academic as well as from the industrial community. Also, this course is important for biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and related disciplines wherein industry participants—both technically focused as well as business focused—can get a solid understanding of the marketplace as well as receive the most up-to-date market data and associated materials for in-house research and business planning activities. Also, this course is recommended for investors as well as attorneys looking for a current technology and market review of this expanding field.

All attendees to this training course receive the electronic files of the presentation material on disk with full rights to use them in their internal R&D as well as business planning activities.
