Discovery and validation of extracellular RNA biomarkers webinar

Biofluid extracellular RNAs (exRNAs) play an increasingly important role in disease pathogenesis.

Listen in as Dr Saumya Das, co-director of the Resynchronization and Advanced Cardiac Therapeutics Program at MGH,discusess the use of RNA-seq within biomarker discovery, and reviews the different platforms available for validating RNA-seq discoveries.

Webinar topics:

  • Use of next generation sequencing for extracellular RNA biomarker discovery
  • Advantages and disadvantages of assay platforms for validation of RNAseq discoveries
  • Case study: use of Fireplex platform to demonstrate a signature for heart remodeling in heart failure

Meet our presenter:

    Dr Saumya Das graduated with his MD-PhD from Harvard Medical School in 2000. Following his phD, he completed his internal medicine training at MGH, with a focus on cardiovascular sciences and clinical electrophysiology

    Dr Das is now the co-director of the Resynchronization and Advanced Cardiac Therapeutics Program at Massachusetts General Hospital, where his research focuses on understanding mechanisms of arrhythmias in heart failure, discovering new tests to provide better identification of patients at risk of developing heart failure or arrhythmias, and uncovering new therapies to treat heart failure.
