Sciforum—Upcoming Conferences

Sciforum is a platform for scholarly exchange and collaboration developed and maintained by MDPI. Sciforum gives scholars the opportunity to participate in online conferences, share scholarly papers and other files, and create or join discussion groups.

We would like to announce the following upcoming international scientific conferences organized in association with MDPI journals in 2017:

2nd International Symposium on Frontiers in Molecular Science—Non-Coding RNAs and Epigenetics in Cancer

The 2nd International Symposium on Frontiers in Molecular Science , organized by the MDPI journals International Journal of Molecular Sciences and Non-Coding RNA will be held in Basel, Switzerland, from 21st to 23rd of June 2017. It will comprise five plenary sessions to highlight the most exciting developments and the latest breakthroughs in oncology.
Leaders in the field will present the roles of miRNAs and lncRNAs in cancer, with a focus on the recently identified novel mechanisms of action, and discuss the current strategies in designing ncRNA-targeting therapeutics, as well as the associated challenges.
