‌‌The MRC Centre for Drug Safety Science has organised a scientific workshop entitled “Use of microRNAs in drug safety assessment”, to be held in Liverpool on Thursday 4th October 2018.


The workshop will focus on the use of microRNAs in drug safety assessment exemplified by preclinical (industry) and clinical case reports, in addition to diagnostics, pharmacogenomics and bioinformatics approaches using microRNAs in safety assessments.


The workshop will bring together research scientists and clinicians from academia, industry and government and aims to define key clinical and research questions that can be addressed in a collaborative manner. Best practices and future clinical and scientific directions will be advocated through sharing of pre-competitive information on different approaches. The workshop is limited to approx. 50 attendees and is designed to maximise interactions between delegates. It is envisaged that the meeting proceedings will be published in a high quality scientific journal.
