NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology this month reported new animal data showing that an endothelial cell-targeting nanoparticle can carry microRNAs and siRNAs into lung tumors and cause the cancer to regress.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – While it has been thought that in general microRNAs only bind to targets that perfectly match their seed regions, newly published data from Thomas Jefferson University researchers suggests that non-canonical binding may be even more widespread.

Rosetta Genomics has named Douglas Sites as its executive vice president of sales and marketing.
