Unraveling Novel Small Molecules for Neuroprotective microRNA Activation in Alzheimer’s Disease

Time: 1:30 pm
day: Day Two


  • Diverse non-coding RNAs regulate all biological functions in a cell and expand the landscape of therapeutic targets in the CNS pathologies
  • miR-132 is the top neuroprotective miRNA associated with pathology in Alzheimer’s disease and other tauopathies
  • The first screen on human neurons identified small molecule activators of miR-132-mediated neuroprotection
